Wind Vision: A New Era for Wind Power in the United States

Wind Vision analyzes scenarios of wind power supplying 10% of national end-use electricity demand by 2020, 20% by 2030, and 35% by 2050. Building on the 2008 “20% Wind Energy by 2030” report, this study assesses wind power’s costs, benefits, and impacts in the context of U.S. energy goals. The study concludes that deployment of wind power under the study scenario levels is both viable and economically compelling.
