What Drives Wind Power Development in the US – Policies or Potential
Of the available renewable energy sources, wind is the most established commercial generating technology with more effective and more reliable equipment and machinery. From just 17,400 MW in 2000 the total world wind installed capacity has multiplied almost four times to reach over 94,123 MW at the end of 2007. Today, over 70 countries around the world contribute to the global wind generating capacity. In terms of the global total installed capacity Germany, the US and Spain have been the undisputed leaders. The US is the second in the world in terms of installed wind capacity and has been growing at the average annual growth rate of around 30% during the period 2000-07.
