According to Renewable Energy Magazine “A new report by the US Department of Energy (DOE) finds that advanced wind turbines could bring wind energy to every state in America. The Enabling Wind Power Nationwide report explains how new turbine designs are putting strong, consistent winds within reach. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz announced the report during a keynote speech at the WINDPOWER 2015 Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Florida.
“Wind generation has more than tripled in the United States in just six years, exceeding 4.5 percent of total generation, and we are focused on expanding its clean power potential to every state in the country” said Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz. “By producing the next generation of larger and more efficient wind turbines, we can create thousands of new jobs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as we fully unlock wind power as a critical national resource.”
The report builds upon the DOE’s Wind Vision: A New Era for Wind Power report released in March, which shows how wind energy can become one of America’s top electricity sources with cost reductions for customers.”
