Wind energy consistently emerged as the best way to cost-effectively reduce emissions in a recent study by the nonpartisan Energy Information Administration (EIA). In the most in-depth economic modeling of the Clean Power Plan to date, the EIA found wind played a key role across more than a dozen scenarios that it analyzed, even with low gas prices, more energy efficiency, and greater use of nuclear energy. “Wind accounts for 57 percent of the optimal energy mix to comply with the Clean Power Plan, according to the EIA,” said Michael Goggin, Senior Director of Research for AWEA, author of a white ...
