Membership in AWEA is available to companies in any sector of the wind energy industry, and offers them the resources they need to grow and expand in the right direction.
Networking: Create long-lasting relationships
Members can join AWEA’s exclusive committees and working groups to collaborate with fellow industry leaders on initiatives that truly advance the U.S. wind energy industry.
Members build their network of business contacts through cutting-edge technology like “Attendee Connect,” which links attendees of select AWEA events and interfaces with LinkedIn.
Bottom line: Members expand their business and make new connections at AWEA events. We give you the most comprehensive set of wind power events for the U.S. wind energy industry, created by the U.S. wind energy industry.

AWEA offers a full menu of opportunities for members to foster brand awareness, from sponsoring and exhibiting at events to advertising in print and online. Contact us for a custom brand solution.
As business group, we help you grow your business. Our flagship event, WINDPOWER Conference & Exhibition®, is the networking hub for the industry’s many developers, turbine manufacturers and supply chain companies. Join us May 5-8, 2014 in the Las Vegas.
Strategic policy making: Create the market
AWEA and its members drive demand for wind power in the United States and build long-term markets for wind energy by advocating for federal, regulatory and state policy.
Federal Legislative Policy: AWEA’s success in advocating for the federal Production Tax Credit (PTC) has kept electricity rates low and encouraged renewable energy development. Equipped with the PTC, the wind industry has slashed the cost of wind energy, powered millions of homes, and boosted the economy in all 50 states.
Regulatory Policy: AWEA works with federal regulators on key regulatory issues, including how transmission is planned and paid for. Our progress indicates that near-term transmission projects will open up enough new wind energy project locations to double the amount of wind installed nationwide.
State Policy: AWEA reaches far beyond Washington, D.C. to support policies that matter right in your backyard. We coordinate with our regional partners to advocate for measures that create a supportive local business environment for wind power. See how we’re doing in your region.
Communications: Shaping the message
Each day AWEA’s Public Affairs team plays both offense and defense, trumpeting American wind energy’s win-win message while countering attacks and misinformation. In particular, we:
- Maintain a network of nearly 250,000 supporters on action sites and social media to tell decision makers on Capitol Hill and in state capitals what is at stake.
- Offer your company's top spokespeople the chance to participate in AWEA's Speakers Bureau, with training, regular updates, media bookings and speaking opportunities.
- Collaborate on events and press releases, and promote best practices in community relations with how-tos, templates and a library of sample materials.
Market Intelligence: Make smart decisions
AWEA’s active Industry Data and Analysis team provides energy sector statistics, wind project and manufacturing data, market forecasts, and overall data on wind energy benefits.
In addition to the AWEA U.S. Wind Industry Annual Market Report, the team issues Quarterly Market Reports and webinars to ensure AWEA Business Members have the necessary information to solve business challenges and succeed in the marketplace.
