DOE Names CBI's Facilitating Wind Energy Siting Workshop a "Wind Powering America Success Story"

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently named CBI/Raab Associates' Facilitating Wind Energy Siting Workshop a "Wind Powering America Success Story".

Wind Powering America (WPA) is a nationwide initiative of the U.S. Department of Energy's Wind Program designed to educate, engage, and enable critical stakeholders to make informed decisions about how wind energy contributes to the U.S. electricity supply. WPA recognized CBI/Raab Associates' workshop as a successful step toward increasing the acceptance of wind technology in the U.S.

The workshop, which took place in spring 2011, was funded by the DOE's "20% Wind Energy by 2030" initiative. "[It] sought to build the capacity of state officials to collaborate effectively with diverse stakeholders to advance wind development policy, facility siting, and energy transmission," said Patrick Field, CBI Managing Director.

Field was also featured in a recent WPA webinar in which he presented the findings of the 2011 workshop.
