Due to growing energy prices, uncertainties over fuel supply and concerns over climate change and global warming, policy makers in United States are forced to rethink the energy mix of the country and develop diverse sources of clean and renewable energy.

In 2006, President Bush emphasized the need for greater energy efficiency and a more diversified energy portfolio. In line with this, United States has set a target of producing 20% of it electricity from wind energy by the year 2030. While this target looks ambitious, it can be achieved if key issues relating to technology and policies are taken well care off.

The report - Wind Power Generation in United States - analyses the role of wind energy in U.S. energy mix. The report begins with a detailed overview of the U.S. electricity market with statistics for power generation, transmission and consumption along with role of key players in the electricity industry.

Report then assesses the technology behind power generation using wind energy. In this section, various aspects of the wind turbines technology including components, benefits and areas of further research are discussed.

The report further discusses the U.S. wind power market with information on current installation, recent projects, key application areas and other market statistics. Market drivers are analyzed along with challenges that need to be addressed.

Government policies and incentives for developing wind power are also presented. The report then turns to a review of trends in installed wind project costs, wind turbine transaction prices, project performance, and operations and maintenance expenses.

Finally, the report examines the future prospects of the market and gives in insight into future trends that will help this market to grow.
