Wind Energy Regional Resource Centers

The U.S. Department of Energy's Regional Resource Centers provide unbiased wind energy information to communities and decision makers to help them evaluate wind energy potential and learn about wind power's benefits and impacts in their regions. During their first year of operations, the Regional Resource Centers impacted more than 12,000 key stakeholders to meet their performance goals. Each Regional Resource Center applies a unique regional context to identify key stakeholders in the area. Stakeholders may include, for example, county commissioners, state legislators, landowners, tribal authorities, and organizations such as utilities, schools, and non-profit agencies.
