New England Wind Energy Education Project (NEWEEP)

The New England Wind Energy Education Project (NEWEEP) is a project funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Wind Powering America (WPA) Initiative under a two-year grant. The project consists of an 8-part webinar series (free of charge) and an in-person conference. NEWEEP is directed by a steering committee including New England state agencies, regional and national research organizations, New England’s regional grid operator, and others who have committed to participate in the project. NEWEEP’s objective is to support appropriately-sited wind projects, and help the public and local decision-makers assess what is appropriately-sited based on an understanding of the issues, and not fear or hyperbole.  The webinar series is an attempt to bring objective information on issues affecting public acceptance of wind power, into the heated dialogues where local citizens and officials are being bombarded with confusing, conflicting and often exaggerated claims and counterclaims from project proponents and very organized anti-wind activists (neither without an agenda).
