Wind Power Program Targets Journalists

February 17, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] The Alternative Energy Institute at West Texas State University has won a grant to conduct a two-day educational program for journalists to give them a better understanding of the possibilities and problems related to increased use of wind energy, according to the American Wind Energy Association’s (AWEA). A wide range of current opinions about wind energy will be discussed during the program. Representatives from local utilities will contribute to the program, and some developers and participating landowners will be invited to express their views and interact with program participants. Speakers will also represent the National Wind Technology Center in Boulder, Colorado, offering participants a national feel for wind industry potential. Since the program is scheduled a few weeks before the Global WINDPOWER 2004 Conference & Exhibition, journalists will have time to plan their coverage and to absorb and comprehend the potential and problems that the wind industry faces. Interested journalists should contact AEI at the following e-mail address by February 24: aeimail@mail.wtamu.edu
