The DOE's Annual Lowdown On The State Of U.S. Wind Energy - North American Windpower

According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) annual wind market reports, the U.S. added more than 8.2 GW of wind capacity last year, representing 27% of all energy capacity additions in 2016. The DOE says its three new market reports – covering land-based utility-scale, offshore and distributed wind – demonstrate continued growth in wind power nationwide. The reports were prepared by the DOE’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, whose contributions were funded by the DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. According to the DOE, recent and projected near-term growth is supported by the industry’s primary federal incentive, the production tax credit (PTC), as well as myriad state-level policies. Wind additions have also been driven by improvements in the cost and performance of wind power technologies, yielding low power sales prices for utility, cor...
