Description (excerpt):

The U.S. wind industry experienced a banner year in 2008, once again surpassing even optimistic growth projections from years past.  At the same time, the past year has been one of upheaval, with the global financial crisis impacting near-term growth prospects for the wind industry, and with significant federal policy changes enacted to push the industry towards continued aggressive expansion.

This report – the third of an ongoing annual series – attempts to meet this need by providing a detailed overview of developments and trends in the U.S. wind power market, with a particular focus on 2008.
