On Wednesday, December 10, the Islanded Grid Resource Center (IGRC) hosted the first of its series of interactive webinars designed to build connections between islanded grid stakeholders and industry experts and share reliable information to promote fact-based decision making about wind power and other renewable energy sources as a way to lower energy costs. The introductory webinar featured presentations from IGRC facilitators Chris Rose, Suzanne MacDonald, and Stephanie Nowers about the goals of the IGRC, ways to get involved, and plans for upcoming activities, as well as an interactive question & answer session with participants.
The Islanded Grid Resource Center and the IGRC webinar series are supported by the Department of Energy’s WINDExchange initiative. The IGRC is one of six Regional Resource Centers funded by WINDExchange to support fact-based decision making and increase wind energy literacy across the United States.
