About Us


We are the Midwest Wind Energy Center (MWEC)

MWEC works to increase support for wind energy by connecting people with accurate information about economics, environment, and policy. We address barriers to development by providing access to reliable reports from authoritative sources, and by facilitating information sharing opportunities for all types of stakeholders.
