This guide identifies policy tools that state and local governments can use to bring the private and public benefits of small wind turbines to their communities.
Wind Technician Television presents on-line video learning materials designed for students in wind turbine training programs. Part of a three-year project supported by the National Science Foundation, WindTechTV is part of the NSF Advanced Technological Education initiative. WindTechTV presents information about yaw control systems, blade and flange joint assembly and maintenance, hydraulic torque tools, and fiber optic maintenance and repair practices, as well as other topics of interest. Industry experts demonstrate the latest procedures, such as laser alignment and non-destructive inspection.

This guide from the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) identifies policy tools that state and local governments can use to bring the private and public benefits of small wind turbines to their communities. You will find definitions of small wind turbine, examples of state incentive programs, and other helpful resources.
The American Wind Energy Association provides an online job board for both job jobseekers and job recruiters.
This standard provides meaningful criteria upon which to assess the quality of the engineering that has gone into a small wind turbine meeting this standard, and provides consumers with performance data that will help them make informed purchasing decisions. This standard was written to ensure the quality of the product can be assessed while imposing only reasonable costs and difficulty on the manufacturer to comply with the standard. (Must now pay for report.)
View wind energy projects on a State-by-State basis; this data includes wind power project sites that are in operation and/or under construction. Information is primarily from AWEA member companies.
The Centers of Excellence support the community colleges in California by providing customized data on high growth, emerging, and economically-critical industries and occupations and their related workforce needs. Studies for solar, wind, energy efficiency and green jobs are included.
ETA International’s comprehensive Renewable Energy credentialing program is unlike any other green certification provider. ETA offers three career track certification pathways in renewable energy technology — Installer / Integrator / Maintainer.
Through this project, the Great Lakes Wind Collaborative will examine the policies and practices that are working best within and beyond the region; those that allow wind development yet are protective of environmental and community concerns. Once identified, it will “tell the story” about those practices through the development and strategic delivery of various materials, including an online toolbox and briefings to Great Lakes decision makers. Provides ideas on how to talk about building the wind industry in a course.
This document helps explain how to structure community renewable energies projects that allow for ownership by many people within a community context. This model has been used successfully in many parts of the country and in other countries. These materials could be included in courses that explain how to increase sales and/or financing and implementation of renewable energy systems on a larger than individual home scale.
