This is an excerpt from the Second Quarter 2012 edition of the Wind Program R&D Newsletter.

The Energy Department will host an exhibit booth at the American Wind Energy Association WINDPOWER Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, June 3 – 7. Visit the Energy Department's Wind Program booth, #2411, to learn about the Department's latest research and development efforts, and speak with Wind Program staff.

The Wind Program leads the nation's efforts to improve the performance, lower the costs, and accelerate the deployment of wind technologies. The program works with national laboratories, industry, universities, and other federal agencies to conduct research and development 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 our environment.
