3TIER Group, a Seattle-based provider of wind assessment services, and Global Energy Concepts (GEC), a Seattle-based wind energy technical consulting firm, have entered into a one-year cooperation agreement whereby GEC will use 3TIER's Firstlook wind assessment product.

Terms of the agreement provide GEC a discounted price on an anticipated volume of Firstlook reports, the companies note. GEC will provide 3TIER with ideas for product enhancements to help with 3TIER's goals of meeting the industry’s need for accurate, statistically documented wind resource information.

"This agreement underscores our commitment to provide value to our clients by combining our knowledge and experience with the best available tools," says Robert Poore, president of GEC. "By delivering on-demand information on the Web, Firstlook gives us access to a source of nearly instantaneous wind resource information."
