Wind Energy Project Managers

Employment Prospects


There are about 120,000 people employed in the wind energy industry, according to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA). Wind energy project managers work for large construction companies, energy companies, or land owners. They may work as employees or as independent contractors. Different areas of the United States are windier than others, which is why wind-related projects tend to be most concentrated in the Midwest, Southwest, and Northeast regions. The top five U.S. states by total installed wind capacity are Texas (30,904 MW), Iowa (10,799 MW), Oklahoma (8,173 MW), Kansas (6,512 MW), and California (5,871 MW).
