The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) has formed 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 lead by Jennifer Jenkins.
DWEA will expand the efforts of AWEA, which include producing an annual statistical report and advocating on the state and federal levels for distributed wind.
2009 market data show that the distributed wind industry reached 100 MW of installed capacity, more than $80 million in sales and more than $250 million in private equity investment.
