Wind Turbine Component Manufacturers
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Wind Prospector tool is a web-based Geographical Information System that supports resource assessment and data exploration for wind development. Wind Prospector includes a data layer dedicated to the locations of U.S. wind turbine and component manufacturing and supply chain facilities. Corporate headquarters, service facilities, material suppliers, R&D and logistics centers, and smaller component manufacturers (e.g., bolt manufacturers) are not included. The list of facilities included is not intended to be exhaustive.
Georgia Offices & Organizations
The 25x’25 Alliance is dedicated to securing 25% of the nation’s energy needs from renewable sources by the year 2025.
The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management has seen strong interest in offshore renewable energy projects on the Outer Continental Shelf. BOEM works closely with certain coastal states regarding offshore energy development and is in the process of coordinating federal-state task forces. A summary of the status of activity in the different states is available.
Clean Energy Group is a leading national, nonprofit organization working on innovative policy, technology, and finance programs in the areas of clean energy and climate change. The group's projects concentrate on climate and clean energy issues at the state, national, and international levels and include stakeholders from governments and the private and nonprofit sectors. Clean Energy Group assists states to create and implement innovative practices and public funding programs for clean energy project deployment; creates networks of U.S. and international policy makers to address climate stabilization strategies; and advances effective distributed innovation theories, finance, and commercialization tools for new climate technologies.
The Georgia Coastal and Marine Planner was created by the Georgia Tech Center for GIS for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Coastal Management Program with funding provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The tool helps to define a clear process for offshore energy licensing and permitting in Georgia, addressing data and communication gaps between regulatory agencies that could delay the permitting process.
The Energy Resources Division promotes energy efficiency, renewable energy, and energy assistance programs that improve the environment, strengthen quality of life, and stimulate sustainable economic development and growth.
A diverse team of energy-related researchers create sustainable, reliable, affordable, and integrated solutions to energy demands and resources. Their mission includes offering high-impact solutions to urgent energy issues through creating technologies and education programs.
The mission of the Southeastern Wind Coalition is to advance the wind industry in ways that result in net economic benefits to industry, utilities, ratepayers, and citizens of the Southeast. The coalition focuses on supply chain growth, economic development, job growth, and wind energy development in the region with solutions that are beneficial to industry and utilities and result in net economic benefits to citizens and ratepayers.
