WindMadeâ„¢ label standard presented to U.S. market
New York City, 15 June 2011: WindMadeâ„¢, the first global consumer label for companies using wind energy, was presented to the public today, on Global Wind Day (15 June).The WindMadeâ„¢ initiative took shape as the proposed WindMadeâ„¢ technical standard enters a two-month public consultation period.
The proposed standard requires participating companies to source a minimum of 25 per cent of their electricity demand from wind power. This level is set to strike a balance between an ambitious target and an achievable goal for progressive companies striving to make a tangible impact.
