Help NEWEEP Prioritize the Workshop Sessions!
NEWEEP is excited to announce a unique opportunity for all registrants to help the conference planners prioritize the afternoon workshop topics. Shortly after you have registered, you will receive an email with a link to a brief questionnaire (10 minutes) requesting your feedback to rank workshop topics in order of importance and to provide us with other topics you feel should be included in the workshop sessions. We are extending this offer to you in an effort to incorporate your thoughts, comments and feedback. We look forward to hearing from you and thank you in advance for your time and efforts.
The New England Wind Energy Education Project is a project funded by the U.S. Department of Energy Wind Powering America Initiative under a two-year grant. NEWEEP is directed by a Steering Committee consisting of New England state agencies, regional and national research organizations and New England's regional grid operator, who have committed to participate in the project. NEWEEP is neither industry-funded nor industry-driven. The project consists of an 8-part Webinar series and an in-person conference. Read more information about NEWEEP.
