The Wind Energy Applications Training Symposium (WEATS) is an internationally-acclaimed hands-on workshop on wind energy first launched in 1988. Participants observe large and small wind systems in operation in the field and meet with leaders in the U.S. wind energy industry and get acquainted with Native American tribal members and participants from other countries. They develop useful contacts and practical expertise that will help them bring a wind energy project to fruition and ensure it operates successfully and profitably for years.

WEATS is designed for project planners, developers, utility officials, and engineers directly involved with energy projects, who are considering wind energy development and want to learn more about wind energy technology applications.

The seminar provides participants with practical knowledge and analytical tools for conducting project pre-feasibility and identification analysis, and implementation of wind energy projects large and small. Participants learn from experts and business leaders about the capabilities of the technology, and about economic and financial aspects of sustainable project development.
