The wind power will be quadrupling in the next 4 years, summarized at Renewable Energy Access, the recent report ‘US/Canada Wind Power Markets and Strategies 2005-2010’ by Emerging Energy Research informs. But, how little impact will this have? The Earth Sentinel reveals that wind energy will quadruple, but will only be 1% of US energy supply! It made a rigorous study of the EIA statistics.
