Information and Outreach
As part of its effort to advance wind energy technologies and increase development, NREL publishes information and conducts outreach efforts to help industry stakeholders as well as the general public understand the benefits of wind energy and the technical and nontechnical barriers that impede development. Each year, NREL publishes dozens of technical reports and papers that keep industry informed of its latest R&D efforts and accomplishments.
In addition, NREL's Wind Powering America (WPA) team collaborates with industry members and regional stakeholder groups to mitigate nontechnical barriers and increase our nation's wind energy capacity. WPA focuses its outreach efforts on rural economic development, public power partnerships, Native American activities, and small wind systems.
