The National Wind Coordinating Collaborative (NWCC) creates consensus and communication between lynch pin organizers and investors, pinpointing areas of concern on how to use and implement wind power.
They foster mission critical tasks that create support for the discovery and longevity of environmentally, economically, and politically viable for profit markets for wind power generation and products.
The NWCC is made up of utility leaders, legislators, innovators and other community stakeholders.
The focus of this group is determining the electrical transmission of wind energy, and the integration of large-scale wind energy into the national utility.
The group also looks into the environmental impact of a project on an area or region.
The research done by the National Wind Coordinating Collaborative is done or gone over in workgroups.
These work groups are made up of affected and interested parties.
The National Wind Coordinating Collaborative encourages positive dialog between people who may know about an issue and those who do not understand the issue yet.
Issues that concern wind power on a large commercial scale, range from wild life impact to how the habitat of the same creatures will be affected.
A work group discusses costs and benefits of a project they are planning or have implemented before hand.
This panels outlook is important for wildlife affected by commercial wind power development.
The practices developed by these work groups keep focus on the needs of various stakeholders in wind power electrical transmission, and stakeholders in wildlife habitat reservation.
The transmission workgroup focuses on best practices in the West, Midwest, Southwest Power Pool regions as well as policy, operational, and regulatory reforms at the federal, state, and regional levels. According to their web site.
