AWEA Regional Wind Energy Summit - New England 2012

Wednesday, September 5, 2012

This week the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) is holding its New England regional wind energy summit in Maine. AWEA members and other attendees are convening to discuss the business and impacts of wind energy. Today's program includes panels on the demand for wind energy in New England, promoting community acceptance of wind projects, best practices for minimizing development and construction risks and impacts, and transmission and interconnection issues related to connecting wind generation to electricity consumers.

The event appears well attended, with nearly every seat in the conference room taken.  Attendees include regulators, community wind leaders, commercial project developers, and manufacturers of turbines and other equipment.

This year's New England summit runs through tomorrow, when panelists will present on issues related to community wind and offshore wind project development in the Northeast.
