As the 3-year Wind Powering America priority state activities end and similar federal funding for medium- and low-priority states transitions to regional outreach activities, the U.S. Department of Energy's Wind and Water Power Program and Wind Powering America are hosting a series of 1-day meetings at strategic locations around the country. State representatives, Wind Working Group members, and other interested stakeholders are invited to attend and share experiences. Through these events, Wind Powering America staff and participants will identify lingering deployment barriers, prioritize these barriers, and then work in small groups to review successful approaches and discuss potential approaches to address the barriers identified.

The meeting will allow wind stakeholders from each region to meet and discuss approaches to address the most pressing market barriers, learn from experiences in other states, and help build regional collaboration. Wind Powering America will also use the meeting results to help plan the Wind Powering America Annual All-States Summit and future program activities. This meeting is free to attend, but please register so we may plan accordingly. Deadline March 25, 2011
