AWS Truepower Data Fuels Recent NREL and NYSERDA Offshore Assessments; Company's New Offshore Prospecting Capabilities on Display at AWEA Offshore Conference, October 5-7

ALBANY, NY—October 5, 2010—AWS Truepower, LLC, an international leader in renewable energy consulting and information services, is reporting widespread demand for its offshore data and assessment expertise, including recent collaborations with The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). To discuss these projects, several of the company's top executives will be on site at the AWEA North American Offshore Wind Conference & Exhibition, where they will also serve as featured presenters. The conference, taking place October 5-7 in Atlantic City, NJ, will include demonstrations of AWS Truepower's rich new offshore prospecting data and capabilities at Booth #206.

AWS Truepower arms influential agencies like NREL with high-quality offshore wind data to conduct nationwide studies such as the recent assessment that determined the U.S. has 4,150 gigawatts (GW) of offshore wind power potential. NREL's analysis report, "Assessment of Offshore Wind Energy Resources for the United States" features wind maps produced with AWS Truepower offshore data and can be found at

AWS Truepower also recently announced an expanded relationship with NYSERDA, including a newly published research collaboration regarding the potential for renewable energy development in the Great Lakes region. Commissioned by NYSERDA, the AWS Truepower study reinforces the viability of New York's Great Lake waters as a resource for offshore wind production. The full report can be accessed at

"U.S. waters contain a wealth of offshore development potential as evidenced, among published studies, by our work with NREL and NYSERDA--these two recent examples supporting the importance of accurate, science-based intelligence to properly assess offshore wind resources," said Bruce Bailey, president and CEO at AWS Truepower. "We are excited to offer on-demand access to our newest repository of rich offshore data, to our vast customer base of utility-scale developers, utilities, manufacturers, government agencies, academic, non-profit and advocacy groups, helping them quickly analyze and prioritize business opportunities."

Users of AWS Truepower's industry-leading wind prospecting and resource analysis application, windNavigator, will now be able to benefit from the company's offshore expertise as well. Available immediately, AWS Truepower has developed a comprehensive offshore dataset for use within windNavigator 2.2.2, the primary platform for delivering its information-rich products. The first web-based application to enable the purchase of 200-meter resolution wind resource grid (WRG) data, users can now leverage the windNavigator 2.2.2 siting and assessment tool to easily conduct initial project design work for offshore wind projects with on-demand, high-resolution offshore wind data. New features include:
• Available map from the Florida-Georgia border to the Maine-Canada border
• Mapped from coastline, 50 nautical miles off the coast
• Click speeds available by subscription
• windNavigator Compass information
• All data will be available for purchase, including wind resource grid files and reports
