The US wind energy market could reach 8GW installed in 2009, (including project spill-over from 2008 and new wind build), despite initial fears of a major drop in megawatts resulting from the financial crisis, according to a brief just released from Emerging Energy Research (EER).
6.3GW of wind have already been added in 2009, while more than 2GW are under construction and scheduled for activation by year’s end. “At face value it appears that the US market could witness its second-best growth year to date; however, if you remove spill-over build originally meant for completion in 2008, 2009 market activations will probably be closer to half of 2008 levels,” according?to Senior Wind Analyst Matthew Kaplan.
