Different futures for wind energy: who will be right?

The U.S. election showed how concerned Americans are about good manufacturing jobs. The wind energy industry has experienced double-digit cumulative growth for nearly 20 years. Americans are concerned about clean air and clean water – wind energy production has no air pollution emissions and does not place any strain on precious water resources. Americans understand that competitive electricity prices are key to their global competitiveness – wind is often the least expensive form of new electricity generation. Americans have traditionally focused on energy security; wind energy is home grown. And while climate change may not be a priority for the President-elect, it is to a substantial number of both U.S. and global citizens. Wind energy will be indispensable to countries committed to reducing their contributions to climate change.
