WINDExchange is the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Wind Program's hub of stakeholder engagement and outreach activities. The purpose of WINDExchange is to help communities weigh the benefits and costs of wind energy, understand the deployment process, and make wind development decisions supported by the best available science and other fact-based information.
WINDExchange continues DOE’s efforts to make high-quality information and outreach materials readily available, including:
- maps of wind resources and installed wind capacity
- location-specific information from Wind Energy Regional Resource Centers
- a bimonthly e-newsletter
- webinars and podcasts
- educational programs
- OpenEI online resources such as the Small Wind Guidebook, Wind for Schools Portal, and Wind Working Group Toolkit.
In addition, WINDExchange aims to provide new tools, such as wiki-based resources, to help stakeholders better understand wind energy and exchange best practices. WINDExchange is still under development and suggestions about useful information are welcome.
