Agenda
Southwest Regional Wind Powering America Meeting Proceedings
Feedback Form
As the 3-year Wind Powering America priority state activities end and similar federal funding for medium- and low-priority states transitions to regional outreach activities, the U.S. Department of Energy's Wind and Water Power Program and Wind Powering America hosted a series of 1-day meetings at strategic locations around the country. State representatives, Wind Working Group members, and other interested stakeholders were invited to attend and share experiences. Through these events, Wind Powering America staff and participants identified lingering deployment barriers, prioritized these barriers, and then worked in small groups to review successful approaches and discuss potential approaches to address the barriers identified.

The meeting allowed wind stakeholders from each region to meet and discuss approaches to address the most pressing market barriers, learn from experiences in other states, and help build regional collaboration. Wind Powering America will also use the meeting results to help plan the Wind Powering America Annual All-States Summit and future program activities.

Additional meetings were planned in the following locations:

Participants will learn:

  • The latest news on implementation of the Nevada Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS), including updates from the Public Utilities Commission and from Sierra Pacific Resources, which expects wind to play a major role resource plans.
  • What steps the military is taking to accommodate more wind development in Nevada, and what steps developers can take to assure that new projects will be ultimately successful.
  • How project designs for community-based wind can tap economies of scale while avoiding potentially costly transmission issues.
  • How financing, using new tax incentives and low-interest loans, gives wind a competitive edge.
