Description (excerpt):

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Wind and Water Power Technologies Office led a comprehensive analysis to evaluate future pathways for the wind industry. Through a broad-based collaborative effort, the Wind Vision had four principal objectives:
1. Documentation of the current state of wind power in the United States and identification of key technological accomplishments and societal benefits over the decade leading up to 2014;
2. Exploration of the potential pathways for wind power to contribute to the future electricity needs of the nation, including objectives such as reduced carbon emissions, improved air quality, and reduced water use;
3. Quantification of costs, benefits, and other impacts associated with continued deployment and growth of U.S. wind power; and
4. Identification of actions and future achievements that could support continued growth in the use and application of wind-generated electricity
