The Southern Appalachian Regional Wind Energy Institute (RWEI) provides a means for state wind working groups to learn the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively communicate and promote wind power in their states. The RWEI focuses on activities in West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina. Additional education and outreach is provided to Maryland, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Georgia. RWEI is funded by the Appalachian Regional Commission and managed by the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy. This event will bring together wind stakeholders from the region for networking and presentations. Topics are likely to include wind energy policy and regulation, perspectives from developers, utilities and manufacturers, wind economics, wind and wildlife issues, transmission, and
updates from state wind working groups.
