Wind power conference set for Charlotte

Wind energy advocates are prepping for a regional wind power conference in Charlotte next week that’s set to draw several hundred participants from Georgia, Virginia and the Carolinas to discuss an endless natural resource that has so far failed to yield benefits.

The 2012 Southeastern Costal Wind Conference is sponsored by a wide range of interests, including Duke Energy, Clemson University’s Wind Turbine Drivetrain Testing Facility, and Stevens Towning Co. (a marine transportation service that would presumably benefit from offshore wind farm development).

North Carolina is considered a premier state for wind development because of a state mandate to commit to renewable resources and some of the best wind resources along the East Coast.

The conference speakers at the Charlotte Convention Center, from the N.C. Solar Center and several wind power coalitions, will discuss how to turn that natural resource into a financial resource. They will discuss the Southeast’s supply chain, policies and other aspects of the industry.

Several large-scale wind farms have been proposed in this state, both onshore and offshore, and one has been approved by the N.C. Utilities Commission, but none have signed a contract to sell power to an electric utility.
