Renewable Energy in Iowa's Creative Corridor

Iowa's Creative Corridor features the nation's first Wind Energy Supply Chain Campus: a 173 acre, rail-served campus located between Acciona Windpower and Clipper Windpower.

Iowa leads the nation in the percentage of electricity generated by wind, and was presented the 2008 State Leadership Award by the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) for its leadership in advancing America's wind energy industry.

Additionally, Iowa ranks first in the nation in the production of ethanol, second in the production of biodiesel and second overall in wind energy capacity.
