Wind Power: Issues and Opportunities for Advancing Technology, Expanding Renewable Generation and Reducing Emissions
Author:

Year:
2011
Abstract:

This paper focuses on research, development, demonstration, and deployment (RDD&D) issues consistent with expanding wind's worldwide role in serving consumer demand at low cost in a clean, reliable, and sustainable manner. It identifies opportunities for cost-performance improvements in resource assessment, energy capture, O&M, transmission, grid operations and planning, project development, and impact mitigation. Based on EPRI's technology assessments, this paper also highlights RDD&D priorities that individually promise the greatest savings and productivity gains and together foretell "super turbines" capable of achieving aggressive cost, performance, and deployment targets.
