Wind Powering America's Regional Stakeholder Meetings & Priority State Reports: FY11 Summary summarizes the results of Wind Powering America's regional meetings and the state reports with a focus on ongoing wind deployment barriers in each region.
Beginning in 2010, DOE conducted an assessment of Wind Powering America (WPA) activities to determine whether the methods the department had used to help grow the wind industry to provide 2% of the nation's electrical energy should be the same methods used to achieve 20% of the nation's energy from wind. After the assessment, it was determined that the initiative's state-based activities should be phased out as part of a shift to regional-based approaches. To assist with this transition, WPA hosted a series of 1-day regional meetings at six strategic locations around the country and a single teleconference for island states, U.S. territories, and remote communities.
