DOE Releases Wind Powering America Impact Study

DOE Releases Wind Powering America Impact Study

Date: 6/3/2013

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) established Wind Powering America (WPA) in 1999 to educate, engage, and enable critical stakeholders to make informed decisions about how wind energy contributes to the U.S. electricity supply. The initiative has an overarching goal of dramatically increasing the use of wind energy in the United States.

The independent evaluation resulted from extensive interviews leading to some insightful findings as well as an assessment of the impacts of the WPA activity, in general and in states where the initiative was active.
