Tracking the US Wind Industry: Annual Report on U.S. Wind Energy Markets: 2008

Ryan Wiser


The market for wind power is expanding rapidly, with over 40% of the new electric generating capacity in 2008 coming from this "alternative" energy source. This presentation will provide a broad overview of the US wind power market, with a focus on 2008, and discuss both the opportunities and challenge for continued growth of this "clean" energy source. The presentation will be based on an annual report on the state of the US wind power market, prepared by Berkeley Lab for the US Department of Energy.
