National Renewable Energy Laboratory Publishes 2017 State of Wind Development in the Regions Report
April 16, 2018
National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) researchers published 2017 State of Wind Development in the United States by Region, a comprehensive examination of U.S. wind energy development and deployment. The report is compiled by NREL with input from six Regional Resource Centers, which have received funding from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and provide regional information to communities to help them evaluate wind energy potential and learn about wind power's benefits and impacts. The report summarizes the status of and drivers for U.S. wind energy development in 2017, including state-level information on workforce development, manufacturing and economic development, key stakeholder groups, and development challenges.
