AWEA Wind Project Siting and Environmental Compliance Conference
The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) re-scheduled this conference to September; it will follow the AWEA Wind Resource and Project Energy Assessment Conference. Day one will include committee meetings and a networking reception with exhibits. Day two will be devoted to sessions, exhibits, and networking. The program will feature two educational tracks: wildlife and community engagement issues. Leading up to the conference, conference organizers will host webinars covering topics that will prepare attendees for in-depth discussions and engagement during the live event. The Wind Energy Technologies Office plans to exhibit alongside the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Laboratories. If you’re at the conference, stop by the DOE booth to learn about DOE-funded R&D to better understand and mitigate wind’s impacts on wildlife and air traffic, weather, and defense radars. DOE will also share community siting resources and information and demonstrate a range of tools.
