At this year’s WINDPOWER show in Chicago, booths of more than 400 companies filled the McCormick Convention Center; 100 of them exhibited their expertise for the first time.
That alone is proof at how far wind has come and how far the industry expects it to go.
“The stability created by an orderly five-year phase out of the Production Tax Credit was a home run for our industry, American manufacturing, and job growth,” AWEA CEO Tom Kiernan said during the general session.
“Wind is now an essential part of the modern American electricity supply.”
Here are some photo highlights from Chicago. Wind Systems will see you in Houston in 2019.
