American Wind Energy Association Merges with American Clean Power Association


The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) has merged with the American Clean Power Association (ACP). The ANSI-accredited standards developer (ASD) is now known as the American Clean Power Association (ACP).

The organization has revised their ASD scope to read as follows:

Development of codes or standards within a specific project scope which is in the interest of clean power. These interests may include requirements for uniform practices in technology, power systems, design criteria, performance, operations, maintenance, environmental, safety, health, construction, installation, production, siting, qualification of personnel, training, and education, and/or related programs for clean power. The standards and codes developed by committees are continually formed at the request of interested and affected parties depending on the needs of the industry, in order to meet the challenges and requirements on the international, national, and local levels.

The former scope of AWEA was:

AWEA prepares standards documents to facilitate uniform practices in the technology of Wind Energy Conversion Systems. AWEA also coordinates U.S. input and response to the international standards activities. AWEA's standards program consists of the following subcommittees: Performance, Siting, Acoustics, Operational Safety, Electrical Power Systems, Design Criteria, WECS/Diesel, Terminology, and Installation.

Any comments or questions related to the revised scope should be submitted by April 5, 2021, to Ms. Michele Myers-Mihelic, director, worker health and safety policy and standards development, ACP, (202.383.2500; [email protected]). Please copy [email protected].
