Join Us: Support policies that harness the full potential of renewable energy in the United States.
This year, we are celebrating all the ways “Wind Builds the Future.” In a time of economic uncertainty, wind power is bringing jobs, new revenue, and opportunity to communities across the country. Wind energy is one of the few industries creating new manufacturing jobs and delivering sustained economic benefits to rural communities. And offshore wind energy offers a once-in-a-generation opportunity we need to take to help spur an economic recovery.
Now in its fourth year, American Wind Week 2020 is a celebration of all of the ways wind power has created opportunity in the past, and the ways wind energy will power an economic recovery and help us build a cleaner, healthier, and more resilient future.
American Wind Week is an annual nation-wide celebration of America’s accomplishments in advancing wind energy and recognizing the benefits wind brings to communities across the U.S. This year marks the Fourth Annual American Wind Week and what better way to kick off the 2020 decade than highlighting one of America’s major sources of clean energy that is powering our economy into the future!
AWEA hosted the inaugural “American Wind Week” in 2017 in celebration of wind power emerging as America’s #1 source of renewable energy capacity. Since then, every August elected officials across the country are invited to visit wind farms and factories to learn more about wind technology and show their support. Americans across the political spectrum participate in company and community-organized events and share their support for wind on social media.
Submit a Photo: People working in the wind energy field or students studying for a career in wind are encouraged to submit a photo of themselves on the job or in the classroom. AWEA will highlight our American wind workforce on social media throughout American Wind Week.
