Abstract

This report investigates the role which wind energy plays in providing power to the United States, and the likelihood of this role increasing in the future. The motivating factors for such an investigation include the inevitable depletion of fossil fuels, need for US energy independence, and the reduction of CO2 emissions. By closely examining both the current state of energy usage and wind technology in the US, the potential for future growth of wind based power generation is firmly established.
