The wind industry's largest trade group a few months ago rejected the idea of a "clean power" mandate on utilities that included nuclear, some coal and natural gas as options. But American Wind Energy has a new opinion today. With talk starting about an energy bill, the wind influence group finds itself receptive to the policy it previously dismissed. "We're open to talking about anything at this point," said Rob Gramlich, AWEA's senior vice president of public policy. The wind industry, along with other energy trade groups and companies, is re-examining its positions on the clean energy standard, or CES, along with other energy issues as it lobbies lawmakers in the new Congress. As advocacy begins, many are reconsidering a policy they had not backed before.
