Future wind energy costs 50 percent lower than predicted five years ago

Five years ago, a survey led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) asked many experts about the future of wind power and cost trends. Once again, the industry has beaten the projections– cost reductions since then have dropped much faster than predicted. New estimates of future costs are half what global wind experts predict … Continue reading Future wind energy costs 50 percent lower than predicted five years ago
