You are invited to attend an Energy and Climate Cluster Conference call this Thursday at 3 PM EDT.

Here are the logistics:

The Energy and Climate cluster
Date: July 28, 2011
Day and Time: Thursday, 3:00 PM EDT.
Dial-In Information: Phone: 1-877-669-3239 ; Code: 23133897#

The agenda will include follow-on discussion of a project idea that was proposed and discussed at the ESIP 2011 Summer meeting in Santa Fe and agreed upon by the members present to pursue going forward.  The goal of this project is to build an online Dynamic (Wiki/Drupal) Wind (Power)-Wildlife-Habitat Decision Tools Catalogue and support for the Community of Practice to

*         Build transparency of the decision tool architecture, data, and functionality

*         Aid the decision maker in tool selection and use appropriate to their planning goals

*         Focus improvements to the kit of decision tools where needed

*         Facilitate partnerships in tool development and application

The minutes (to be posted tonight) at the ESIP wiki will provide some details of the discussion that took place in Santa Fe.


A key next activity is to plan a workshop in early November 2011 where government policy makers and planners, concerned community stakeholders,  research scientists and industry developers can come together to define the needs, discuss potential approaches,  scope the architecture, and gather information needed to take the next steps including preparing a proposal to potential funding agencies.

Your participation in planning this project will be highly appreciated.
