Department of Energy has a New Vision for Wind Power

In 2008, President George W. Bush’s Department of Energy released a groundbreaking report that showed how the United States could reach 20% of total electric generation from wind power by the year 2030. Today, President Barack Obama’s Department of Energy has released an updated version of the “20% by 2030″ report released in 2008. The report, “Wind Vision: A New Era for Wind Power in the United States”, accounts for the success the wind industry has enjoyed over the past seven years, evaluates some continued barriers to expanded wind power opportunities, and outlines a path whereby every state in the country has a wind farm installed by the year 2050.
