DOE Announces Nearly $14 Million to go to 28 New Wind Energy Projects

July 16, 2009

WASHINGTON – U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Steven Chu today announced the selection of 28 new wind energy projects for up to $13.8 million in funding – including $12.8 million in Recovery Act funds.  These projects will help address market and deployment challenges including wind turbine research and testing and transmission analysis, planning, assessments.

“American families and businesses are struggling in a recession and an increasingly competitive global economy.  The Recovery Act was designed to rescue the economy from the immediate dangers it faces while rebuilding its fundamentals, with an eye toward new industry and opportunity,” Secretary Chu said.  “To help meet these challenges, the Recovery Act invests significant dollars to put people to work to spur a revolution in clean energy technologies.”

“Wind energy will be a critical factor in achieving the President’s goals for clean energy, while supporting news jobs,” said Secretary Chu.  “While the United States leads the world in wind energy capacity, we have to continue to support research and development as we expand renewable energy deployment.”

Award Selections Announced Today. Award amounts are subject to final negotiation.
