The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) has announced the formation of the Distributed Wind Energy Association (DWEA), which will focus on advocacy and education to promote the on-site generation and consumption of distributed wind energy. The new coalition will have a national scope and will be led by Jennifer Jenkins as executive director.
The DWEA will expand the efforts of the AWEA, which include producing an annual statistical report, and advocating on the state and federal levels for distributed wind-small and mid-sized turbines that generate enough electricity for a home or business.
In addition, the DWEA joins the AWEA as an event partner in the second annual AWEA Small and Community Wind Conference and Exposition, taking place December 7-9 in Portland, Ore.
