    Future of Wind Energy
    Date: April 07, 2008
    "Future of Wind Energy" Night with a Futurist. In 1991, a national wind resource inventory taken by the U.S. Department of Energy startled the world when it reported that the three most wind-rich states of the United States--North Dakota, Kansas and Texas--had enough harnessable wind energy to satisfy national electricity needs. Now a new study by a team of engineers at Stanford University reports that the wind energy potential is actually substantially greater than that estimated in 1991. Over the past decade, wind has been the world's fastest-growing energy source. Rising from 4,800 megawatts of generating capacity in 1995 to 31,100 megawatts in 2002, it increased a staggering six fold. Worldwide, wind turbines now supply enough electricity to satisfy the residential needs of 40 million Europeans.

    So where do we go from here? Join us as we explore everything from some of the exotic new wind technologies under review, to very real world scenarios that Wall Street is paying close attention to. See
