During the first full day of the Windpower 2011 conference and expo, it was clear that the wind industry is raring to go. CEO of the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) Denise Bode, who rode into the keynote on a custom chopper made expressly to showcase wind power, enthusiastically ticked off the industry’s achievements so far such as creating jobs, creating vibrant economic development and contributing to the development of a renewable portfolio standards in 29 states plus DC. She also unveiled the WindMade label, a new label that will be placed on consumer products that are manufactured with wind energy. Much like the “USDA Organic” label and other consumer labels of the past, WindMade is intended to help consumers see and understand how energy goes into products they purchase regularly.
