More than 600 people have registered to attend Governor Dave Freudenthal's Wyoming Wind Symposium which begins today at the University of Wyoming's Student Union.
The UW's website states that the Wyoming Wind Symposium, convened by the governor and open to the public, is intended to advance the understanding of wind energy development in Wyoming. The two-day event will bring together state and national leaders, resource managers and experts to discuss considerations and approaches to wind development, including financial, legal, transmission, wildlife and policy to provide best practices, and examples for the future of wind energy development in Wyoming.
Among the twelve topics covered at the symposium, attendees will learn about Federal Policy Perspectives; "What's in it for Wyoming: Wind Energy Development in our Backyard"; the Great Unknown: How will Wildlife React?; and the Economics of Developing a Wind Farm.
The program concludes Friday afternoon. For those who were not able to register in time or who could not make it in person, the Wyoming Wind Symposium will be videotaped and available to view on the University's website, including recordings and presentations.
