Wind Energy Continues to Grow in U.S.

March 10, 2015



According to data released by the U.S. Department of Energy, the wind energy sector added "significantly more" electricity over the previous year than any other resource in 2014.  While only 4.4% of all electricity generated in the U.S. last year was from the wind, wind energy remains the country's fifth largest source of energy.  More importantly, wind energy shows substantially more growth from 2013 to 2014 than the other energy sources.

Emily Williams, Deputy Director of Industry Data and Analysis for the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), commented on the recent analysis, "The US is blessed with an abundant supply of wind energy... Pairing this homegrown resource with continued technology innovation has made the U.S. the home of the most productive wind turbines in the world."


Additionally, Tom Kiernan, CEO of AWEA stated regarding the findings, "Having more clean, affordable wind power than ever is helping to keep the lights on for U.S. homes and businesses.  We have an opportunity to have even more of the U.S. reliably powered by wind, resulting in more well-paying jobs, more benefits for consumers and cleaner air.”
