Biofuels Journal and Wind Today Magazine are hosting this free webinar on April 14, 2009 at 2 p.m. Central Time.

Please join me and my colleague, Graham Noyes, as we discuss the Obama Administration’s economic stimulus package and how it will impact the wind and biofuels industries.


There will also be a live Twitter feed available at #stimulusbill

Topics covered include:

• Stimulus Grants and the DOE Loan Guarantee Program – the Administration has provided $2.5 billion in grants for R&D and Demonstration projects; expanded the Loan Guarantee Program by $5 billion; as well as promised to streamline the application processes and speed the release of funds to biofuels plants and other projects under these programs.

• The Production Tax Credit vs. the Investment Tax Credit – review of the varying incentive programs available for wind energy projects.

• Grants In Lieu of Tax Credits – consideration of when grants will provide the highest value for projects.

• The Pending Smart Grid and how this is likely to impact the rapidly growing but transmission constrained wind industry in the U.S.
