Purpose of ConferenceHighlight the great wind energy opportunities in IN

Talk about current wind energy projects taking place in IN and other states

Discuss potential challenges and solutions regarding those projects

Why Wind EnergyHigh oil prices

Environmental Benefits

Economical Benefits

US Lagging Other Countries for Wind as a Percentage of Electricity Consumption

U.S. Leads World in Annual Wind Capacity Additions; Third in Cumulative Capacity

20% Wind Energy by 2030This will create many job opportunities in IN and other states.

According to Paul Cummings 300GW is needed to meet the 20% plan by 2030

January 2006IN Current Power PlantsIn 2006 IN Produced 3.2% of electricity in the US

Power plants are aging and demand for energy increasing

Need both Coal and WindEnvironmental BenefitsReduction of SOx, NOx and CO2 gasses

No WaterPublic AcceptanceLandowners concerns

The government, landowners and developers should work together

In general communities like the one in Benton County are looking forward for wind energyConclusionThe purpose of the conference was to discuss why wind energy is important and discuss current projects in IN

20% Wind Energy plan is possible

Unfortunately , No discussion regarding electric machinery involved
