U.S. Department of Energy: 2009 Wind Technologies Market Report
The Department of Energy reports that wind additions surpassed expectations in 2009, but the industry is unlikely to maintain that pace in 2010.
In 2009, there were 10 gigawatts of new wind power added and $21 billion invested in the United States. That was 20 percent higher than additions in 2008, which was itself a record-breaking year. The Recovery Act and Section 1603 Treasury Grant programs helped drive growth.
In other findings, wind power contributed 39 percent of all new U.S. electric generating capacity in 2009, and the United States remained the global leader in cumulative wind capacity. However, China became the leader in annual additions.
