U.S. Department of Energy Wind Program Initiates Regional Resource Centers

U.S. Department of Energy Wind Program Initiates Regional Resource Centers

Date: 10/30/2013

The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) today issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) from qualified organizations to partner with DOE and NREL in facilitating collaboration and best practices in regional stakeholder engagement. NREL plans to fund up to six Regional Resource Centers (RRCs) to carry out stakeholder engagement activities to support responsible development of land-based, distributed, and offshore wind energy in regions across the nation. Proposals are due December 5th, 2013.

The RRCs will serve as centers of knowledge, working collaboratively with organizations to engage diverse stakeholder groups, disseminate targeted technical information about appropriate wind deployment, and provide forums for constructive dialogue.

The RRCs' geographic position and local networks will enable them to understand regional priorities and challenges faced by each region. Their activities will focus on reducing conflicting uses to preserve or expand access to quality wind resources.

The RFP is available on the Federal Business Opportunities website or you may watch a webinar about this opportunity on the Wind Program website for more information.
