The Wind Energy - The Facts project, coordinated by the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA), aims at answering new questions and challenges that have emerged in relation to wind by creating an exhaustive publication and a regularly updated website on wind energy. It will provide objective information and increase the public knowledge and support for this sector. The manual and website will include 6 volumes with data on wind energy technology, grid integration, economics of wind, its industry and markets, its environmental impacts and the scenarios and targets for wind energy. The publication will be prepared by a consortium of leading experts from different sectors (universities, industry representatives and research institutes) and different countries. As Wind Energy - The Facts outputs will constitute THE reference on wind energy, the target audience will include lay persons, local, regional, national and European decision makers, wind specialists, financial institutions and students. The created tools will be disseminated through targeted workshops in 5 European countries as well as at wind energy conferences.
