NEW YORK — The roster of U.S. wind projects under construction and in advanced development as of the end of the third quarter of 2017 has reached 29,634 megawatts (MW), the highest level since this statistic was first measured at the beginning of 2016, according to a new report from the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) out today. The U.S. Wind Industry Third Quarter 2017 Market Report shows wind power is competing for and winning the business of a growing set of major utilities and Fortune 500 brands.
AWEA released the Third Quarter Market Report from the annual Wind Energy Finance & Investment Conference in New York. Interest was evident from the U.S. wind power capital market, with a large number of investors, including tax equity, private equity, institutional, sovereign wealth funds, and banks, looking to provide financing to wind projects.
