Logo of the American Wind Energy Association.

Formed in 1974, the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) is a Washington, D.C.-based national trade association representing wind power project developers, equipment suppliers, service providers, parts manufacturers, utilities, researchers, and others involved in the wind industry.[1]

With over 2,500 business members, AWEA promotes wind energy as a clean source of electricity for consumers in the U.S. and around the world.


Legislative efforts

AWEA staff works to educate Congress about policies that encourage investment in wind energy by providing statistics and data on the wind industry as well as policy recommendations and testimony on various issues.

AWEA supports policies which it asserts will generate investment in the U.S. economy, improve U.S. energy security, and slow climate change, including extension of the federal Production Tax Credit (PTC) for wind energy, establishment of a national Renewable Electricity Standard (RES), adoption of climate change policy that recognizes wind energy as a major near-term option for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, support for efforts to strengthen and expand the U.S. electric transmission system, and support for a strong federal wind energy research program.[2]

Annual industry conference

AWEA hosts the annual WINDPOWER Conference & Exhibition, which is the largest annual wind conference and exhibition in the world. WINDPOWER features an exhibition of wind energy technology, including large-scale components, as well as presentations on industry trends, technology developments, and renewable energy policy developments. The WINDPOWER 2010 Conference & Exhibition is scheduled for May 23-26 in Dallas, Texas. [3]
