States Advancing Wind Peer Network

Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) would like to invite you to join a new States Advancing Wind Peer Network group as part of the DOE's Wind Powering America State Outreach Project. The goal of this initiative is to create a peer-to-peer network for sharing information on the merits, approaches, best program practices, and policy tools available for states to accelerate wind project development. The information that will be provided will include briefing papers and notices of in-depth webinars on specific topics such as best siting practices, innovative policy tools, and emerging finance mechanisms for wind projects, as well as real-time information on state wind activities. The objective is to provide objective, quality, targeted information for state officials and those interested in state wind policy, not to overwhelm you with too much information too frequently - and to seed opportunities for collaboration.

The goal of DOE's Wind Powering America project is to rapidly accelerate the market penetration of wind technology to secure the substantial energy, economic, environmental, and national security benefits for America. The Department has chosen to work with 25 diverse states and organizations to promote information sharing, including CESA - whose role is to work with state agencies and officials across the nation to advance outreach efforts and to provide targeted technical assistance.

Clean Energy States Alliance is a nonprofit organization representing leading state clean energy programs across the country. Established in 2002, CESA works with over 20 state clean energy funds and programs. CESA assists its members in multi-state strategies to develop and promote clean energy technologies and to create and expand markets for these technologies.
