John Anderson
Senior Director, Permitting Policy and Environmental Affairs

I am the industry lead on national wildlife and non-wildlife siting issues for both land-based and offshore wind development. In this role, I get to work on critical issues related to the deployment and operations of U.S. wind energy facilities, which – once addressed – will aid in the advancement of a form of energy generation that is key to combating climate change.

Prior to joining AWEA, I was Eastern Regional Manager of Environmental Affairs for BP Wind Energy. I hold a bachelor’s in Environmental Science and Management with a minor in Environmental Law from the University of Rhode Island.
