Northeast Wind Resource Center Website Under Construction

Thank you for your interest in the Northeast Wind Resource Center (NWRC), a project managed by Clean Energy Group, Sustainable Energy Advantage, and the Maine Ocean Wind Industry Initiative. The NWRC is partially funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and administered by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. The NWRC will support well-informed, fact-based decisions regarding wind projects by providing credible information, targeted outreach, and direct engagement with stakeholders and decision makers about wind energy deployment in the northeast. Specifically, the Center will address land-based wind siting in New England and New York, and, for off-shore wind, that same region plus New Jersey.  

The NWRC website, now under construction, will serve as a place where local, state and regional decision-makers, the media, and other stakeholders can convene and access information about land-based and offshore wind. Published research, studies, and analyses associated with the issues impacting public acceptance of wind deployment will be available on this web-based clearinghouse.   

The Center itself builds on a strong foundation of policies at the state level, extensive networks of stakeholders interested in wind energy, and important prior stakeholder engagement and educational activities, including the New England Wind Energy Education Project, the Offshore Wind Accelerator Project, and the New England Wind Forum. State policies driving demand for renewable energy generation require the development of appropriately sited wind, which faces challenges that include public acceptance and high costs, to name a few. 

We are currently working to launch the Center and will update this website to reflect our progress. We appreciate your patience as we develop the NWRC program. In the interim, if you need to reach us, please contact us at:

Clean Energy Group and Sustainable Energy Advantage to Operate U.S. Department of Energy’s Northeast Wind Resource Center

The U.S. Department of Energy has announced that Clean Energy Group (CEG), in collaboration with Sustainable Energy Advantage, LLC, has been selected to develop and operate the Northeast Wind Resource Center, one of six regional wind energy resource centers to be established across the US. These resource centers will be tasked with providing accurate and unbiased education and outreach to stakeholders and decision makers about wind energy deployment in their respective regions.
