New Website Creates Link to Wind Energy Community, Information
WASHINGTON, April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Wind Energy Foundation today announced the official launch of its website as part of a campaign to educate consumers, businesses and policymakers about wind energy. Windenergyfoundation.org contains current information about the wind energy market, case studies, featured reports and events, a comprehensive glossary and FAQ, photo gallery, videos, and links to hundreds of other organizations.
"The website is designed as both a portal to the entire wind energy community and a search engine for wind," remarked Darlene Snow, Executive Director. "Our goal is to provide unbiased, accurate and up-to-date information about wind energy."
For consumers, there's information about buying wind energy, WINDMADE™, and wind powering your car. For elected officials, there's information on wind energy policy and links to wind energy in your region or state. For businesses – from power companies to energy consumers – there's information about the economics of wind energy. For educators, there's links to K-12 curriculums and contests, careers in wind, and other educational resources. For developers and concerned citizens, there's information about wildlife, environment, public health and safety issues and benefits.
"We wanted to create a site that was clear and easy to understand, that provides easy access to everything you need to know about wind energy, from its history to how it works. And since it's a portal, we didn't want a 'sticky' site that would keep people there, but one that would get them where they want to go," said Snow. "We want to build and foster the broader wind energy community, which is why we have included links to hundreds of other organizations, reports and additional resources."
The website uses leading-edge search engine optimization techniques to maximize its visibility on the Web.
