A “national trade association for the U.S. wind industry. With thousands of wind industry members and wind policy advocates, AWEA promotes wind energy as a clean source of electricity for American consumers.”  Their goal is to make “clean energy the dominant electricity source in the United States by uniting the power of solar, wind, storage, and transmission companies along with manufacturers and construction companies, developers and owners/operators, utilities, financial firms, and corporate purchasers in the clean energy value chain.” To this end, the association “gives a voice to the renewable power sector to speak at a time when renewable investments can help rebuild our economy and address climate change.”
