The U.S. Department of Energy 2014 Distributed Wind Market Report is now available. The comprehensive report and analysis along with photos of the distributed wind market is compiled for industry stakeholders, DOE, state agencies, and other interested parties. The report (along with the accompanying data tables) is online here: http://www.energy.gov/eere/wind/downloads/2014-distributed-wind-market-report.
According to the 2014 Distributed Wind Market Report, distributed wind reached a cumulative capacity of almost 1 GW (906 MW) in the United States in 2014, reflecting nearly 74,000 wind turbines deployed across all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. In total, 63.6 MW of new distributed wind capacity was added in 2014, representing nearly 1,700 units and $170 million in investment across 24 states. In 2014, America’s distributed wind energy industry supported a growing domestic industrial base as exports from United States-based small wind turbine manufacturers accounted for nearly 80% of United States-based manufacturers’ sales.
