DOE Webinar April 28: Midsize Turbines for the U.S. Community Wind Market
April 22, 2010
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Technical Assistance Project (TAP) for state and local officials is offering an online seminar about a DOE project to develop midsize wind turbines rated at 100 kilowatts to 1 megawatt. Turbines of these sizes comprise the majority of community wind projects today and seem to fit most state and local budgets better than larger turbines that are typically used in utility-scale wind power plants.
The presentation will take place Wednesday, April 28, from 3:00 to 4:15 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, and is titled "Midsize Wind Turbines for the U.S. Community Wind Market." The speaker will be Trudy Forsyth, senior project leader at the DOE National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
The online seminar is free of charge, but you must register in advance to obtain a URL for the presentation and call-in phone number. You can register online, find information about the presenters, and read background materials and reports on the Webinar section of the DOE Weatherization and Intergovernmental Program Web site.
