Advanced Wind Technology: Elevated Opportunities for the South

Rachel Grillo | October 9, 2014

The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE) continues its webinar series with a presentation on our new report entitled “Advanced Wind Technology: Elevated Opportunities for the South.”

In this webinar, SACE staff will share the report findings that demonstrate the South is a new frontier for the wind industry. Advanced turbine technology, lower costs and updated wind resource assessments make wind energy economically feasible across the region. However case studies show that publicly available wind resource maps rely on outdated turbines and underestimate the available wind potential. Areas that could be characterized as “low wind speed,” according to the resource assessment maps, may actually be ideal for consideration of wind power development, especially as newer wind turbine technology achieves greater efficiency. We hope you can join us to learn more about new wind energy opportunities for the Southeast.
