Wind Energy: Global and Regional Progress

Fletcher J. Miller, Ph.D.
National Center for Space Exploration Research
Case Western Reserve University

Abstract

In the last decade harnessing wind energy for electrical power
production
has moved well beyond its origins in California and is now being
applied in
many other states and countries. Of all the sustainable energy
technologies, wind power is the most likely to have the earliest impact
on
reducing the growth rate of carbon dioxide emissions due to its
relatively
low cost and mature status. This presentation will describe recent
changes
in the global outlook for wind energy, including advances in turbines,
and
then detail what is being done to bring more wind turbines and wind
turbine
manufacturing to Ohio. Ideas for future research on wind energy will
also
be given.

Must do for wind

This sounds great - I definitely want to attend. How does this event fit in with the Wind Working Group, Cleveland Foundation, etc. - is this from, endorsed or sponsored by the establishment or is this independent?
