The financial viability of wind power has been demonstrated in Europe, China, and parts of the United States
New estimates of the potential for wind power and the research that backs the estimates up was published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) on September 10, 2012, and reviewed at the Eureka Alert web site in two articles here and here.
Mark Z. Jacobson, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Stanford University, and Cristina Archer, an associate professor of geography and physical ocean science and engineering at the University of Delaware showed that four million, five-megawatt turbines operating at a height of 100 meters could supply as much 7.5 terawatts of power — well more than half the world’s all-purpose power demand — without significant negative affect on the climate.
Presently there are a little more than one percent of the turbines needed to accomplish this emission free extremely low carbon footprint goal.
