Coastal Wind Energy Roundtable
Register Now!!! October 25, 2006
The Coastal Wind Energy Roundtable will be held at the Skidaway Institute on Skidaway Island and will feature wind energy experts Walt Musial and Larry Flowers from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. The event seeks to raise awareness, educate, and bring together interested parties from utilities, state and federal regulatory agencies, developer companies, universities, research institutes, local economic development agencies, public interest groups, and business and community associations on wind topics including:
• Wind Technology/Development Issues
• Offshore and onshore wind potential in coastal Georgia and the surrounding region
• On-shore wind potential in Georgia
• Potential Impacts and Permitting Procedures
• Wind Policy Options
Attendees will have an opportunity to:
• Learn about wind energy technology and its benefits;
• Learn about best practices in promoting wind energy, including appropriate siting and policy;
• Expand awareness of publicly available, local wind energy information;
• Discuss questions about wind energy with field experts.
The early registration fee (deadline October 15th) is $25. The late registration fee is $40. The event is from 9:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. and will include continental breakfast and lunch.
Wind is a clean, renewable and locally available energy resource. Wind can be captured by turbines (like the one shown above) that range in size from residential sized applications to utility scale wind farms producing electricity for hundreds or thousands of homes. Wind energy is becoming increasingly competitive with conventional fuels such as coal, nuclear and natural gas. Georgia is exploring its wind resources and is finding opportunities both off shore and in northern Georgia. Join us at the Georgia Wind Energy Roundtable to learn more.
