In 2014, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) established six wind Regional Resource Centers (RRCs) to provide unbiased wind energy information to communities and decision makers to help them evaluate wind energy potential and learn about wind power’s benefits and impacts in their regions.

Clean Energy Group manages the Northeast Wind Resource Center (NWRC), the RRC for the Northeastern U.S.

The RRCs have identified a wide array of market challenges that continue to hinder wider-scale deployments of wind technologies. This document summarizes the status and drivers for U.S. wind energy development on regional and state levels.
