Couldn't Make it? That's o.k. Check-out pictures of the event here! Presentations, notes, and summaries are also be available at this site.

The 2005 Wind Summit was a fantastic success gauging from the breadth and depth of participants, speakers, and discussions. Many thanks to all who contributed to and attended this event! Presentation files will be available at this site in the near future, so check back soon for this information, meeting notes, and a summary report. To shine the light on our region's potential, the Southeast & Mid-Atlantic Regional Wind Summit will enable us to grow toward a clean, secure, and economical energy future...with wind.

Walk the talk...This event was "wind powered" with 1mWh worth of renewable energy credits from wind energy generated in West Virginia. This clean, renewable, wind power provided more than enough electricity to supply our event at the McKimmon Center, thanks to our sponsor Community Energy, Inc.
