The Department of Energy released a report looking into the future of wind power and the economic benefit that may come with it last week.
The DOE put together the report following President Barack Obama’s strategy to take a look at all energy options for the country, including diversifying sources.
The report, “Wind Vision: A New Era for Wind Power in the United States,” states that with technological advances, wind power could be an economically-viable source of renewable energy throughout the country.
It states that those technological advances could be made in a relatively short period of time and could make wind power more cost effective and the infrastructure to deliver wind power could be up and running.
“Every year, wind becomes cost competitive in more states,” said Dan Utech, deputy assistant to the president. “The United States is uniquely poised to accelerate development of this important resource and technology and the report will help us continue to build on the strong progress we’ve already made.”
Currently, wind power capacity is at 60 gigawatts, which is enough energy to power approximately 16 million homes.
