A New Vision for US Wind Power

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Wind Program, in close cooperation with the wind industry, is launching a new initiative to revisit the findings of the 2008 DOE 20% Wind Energy by 2030 report, and to develop a renewed vision for U.S. wind power research, development, and deployment. Included in this effort will be:

A characterization of industry progress and how recent developments and trends impact the 2008 conclusions

A discussion of the costs and benefits to the nation arising from more wind power

A roadmap addressing the challenges to achieving high levels of wind within a sustainable national energy mix.


In addition to documenting and analyzing the current status of wind technologies and the wind industry, the objectives of the initiative are to:

Provide leadership in development of a cohesive long-term vision for the benefit of the broad U.S. wind power community

Analyze a range of aggressive but attainable industry growth scenarios

Provide best available information to address stakeholder concerns

Provide objective and relevant information for use by policy and decision makers.
