FINAL Toolkit (Study 1 - Posted Feb 10, 2017; updated Feb 27, 2017)

Toolkit Workshop/Webinar

"Toolkit for Turbines Workshop – findings and feedback" is a half-day event (Dec. 8, 2016) which will bring together stakeholders interested in wind energy development siting process policies. We will present findings from our studies and ask for input to refine the Toolkit. The workshop will be hosted using webinar software - which will allow stakeholders to participate online, while others will participate face-to-face.
