Wind Power Fundamentals

 Alex Kalmikov, Katherine Dykes, Kathy Araujo
Description: Wind Potential Worldwide Estimate: 40x the current power consumption or morethan 5 times global use of all energy forms (Lu et al, 2009). Wind Notables: Cost competitive in areas with good wind resource (IEA, 2006). Most economically feasible and fastest growing ‘new’ renewable energy. Wind 35-45% new generation recently added in US and Europe (GWEC, 2009). 5 countries account for roughly 75% of total world usage – US, Germany, China, Spain and India. Share of wind as a % of total power in wind power leaders is on average 10-20% and continuing to increase.
