The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Wind Program will host an exhibit booth at the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) WINDPOWER 2013 Conference & Exhibition in Chicago, Illinois, from May 5-8, 2013. Visit DOE's booth, #1808, to learn more about the program's wind energy research and development (R&D) efforts and pick up a copy of the latest publications. DOE Wind Program representatives will be staffing the booth to answer questions and provide information to the wide range of industry stakeholders attending the conference, including industry professionals, experts, leaders, decision makers, and researchers.
The Wind Program leads the nation's efforts in improving the performance, lowering the costs, and accelerating the deployment of wind technologies. The program works with national laboratories, industry, universities, and other federal agencies to conduct R&D activities through competitively selected, cost-shared projects. Greater use of the nation's abundant wind resources for electric power generation will help stabilize energy costs, enhance energy security, and improve the environment.
