Despite posting its slowest quarter since early 2007, AWEA remains optimistic that the wind industry can and will work successfully with the revolving doors in Washington.
After getting positive feedback on changes made to the show last year, AWEA Wind Power is doubling down and taking their ongoing transformation even further.
Coming off of a stellar 2017 for the wind power industry, Wind Power 2018 is all about carrying that momentum forward.
The Department of Energy estimates that 4 million megawatts of potential powerâ”four times the amount all U.S. power plants combined currently produceâ”exists in offshore wind energy. Construction of Americaâ™s first offshore wind turbines began in July. The wind farm, which is being constructed off the coast of Block Island, RI, will consist of five turbines. Together, they will produce 30 MW.
A look at recent installations, plus interviews with some wind industry insiders.
After a sluggish 2013, annual installations of new wind turbines grew by 44% in 2014, according to the Global Wind Energy Council. And while much of that growth has been in Asiaâ” particularly China, which now leads the world with 114 GW of installed capacityâ”the USA, Europe, and the rest of the world expect steady growth for the next couple of years as well (Fig. 1).
The first trade show dedicated specifically to small and community wind took place in Detroit, Michigan November 3â“5. Denise Bode, American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) CEO, was pleased with the turnout for the event and the increasing potential for this segment of the wind energy market.
