DOE Seeks Input on Wind Energy Workshops (posted 3/12/09)

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has issued a request for information (RFI) to gain public input on the proceedings of the 20% Wind Energy by 2030 Workshop and the proceedings of the U.S. Wind Manufacturing Workshop. In May 2008, the DOE released a report, “20% Wind Energy by 2030,” outlining a scenario in which the U.S. can reach over 300 gigawatts (GW) of installed wind capacity by 2030.

The DOE has hosted two workshops to build on the recommendations of the report, including the U.S. Wind Manufacturing Workshop August 27-28, 2008, to discuss needs for strengthening the U.S. wind manufacturing sector in order to reach 300 GW of installed wind by 2030. On October 6-7, 2008, the DOE held the 20% Wind Energy by 2030 Workshop to discuss possible research and development technology areas and analytical pathways to achieve the 20% wind energy by 2030.

The DOE invites comments and suggestions on all key topics, findings, themes and suggestions found in the Proceedings of the subject workshops. Input is especially encouraged on possible analytical and R&D pathways that could contribute to the achievement of the 20% Wind by 2030 scenario. This RFI does not constitute a request for specific project proposals. The information being sought under this RFI is intended to assist the DOE in further assessing barriers to the 20% Wind Energy by 2030 scenario.

The information collected may be used for internal DOE planning and decision-making to align future activities under the Wind & Hydropower Technologies Program with the administration's goals for increased use of renewable energy and the creation of domestic jobs.

The DOE will not reimburse costs associated with preparing any documents for this RFI, and there is no guarantee that a funding opportunity announcement will be issued subsequent to this RFI. The full text of the RFI is available at http://e-center.doe.gov.
