Renewable Energy World
In a press conference held December 4 during the COP18 climate change conference in Doha, the WindMade organization announced it's no longer just concerned about promoting wind energy, but all renewables. A product label launched in 2011 with the aim of offering consumers an easy way to identify companies and products that use wind energy, WindMade's success has enabled it to expand its focus to develop a new label that includes companies that also rely on solar, geothermal, hydro, and biomass.
“We see demand in the marketplace for a broader consumer label which covers not only wind powered electricity, but other renewable sources as well,” said Steve Sawyer, Secretary General of the Global Wind Energy Council and Chairman of WindMade. “Many companies have already made significant efforts, and we want to give them the best opportunity to make that initiative available to their customers.”
