2018 highlights: Six trends shaping the future of wind power
2018 may be in the rearview mirror, but let’s take a moment to reflect on another year of incredible progress for American wind power. Wind energy made huge strides across the U.S., from the shores of Massachusetts all the way out to California and dozens of places in between. And that’s good news for families and businesses, because it means access to more affordable, reliable, clean electricity is on the way.
AWEA is the national trade association of the U.S. wind energy industry. We represent 1,000 member companies and over 114,000 jobs in the U.S. economy, serving as a powerful voice for how wind works for America. Members include global leaders in wind power and energy development, turbine manufacturing, and component and service suppliers. They gather each year at the Western Hemisphere’s largest wind energy event, the AWEA WINDPOWER Conference & Exhibition, next in Denver, June 1-4, 2020. WINDPOWER 2020 will be housed within CLEANPOWER, the new exhibition hub for utility-scale renewable energy, bringing together wind power, solar power, and energy storage industries.
