The environmental impacts of fossil-fueled electricity drive interest in a cleaner electricity supply. Electricity from wind provides an alternative to conventional generation that could, in principle, be used to achieve deep reductions ð450%Þ in carbon dioxide emissions and fossil fuel use. Estimates of the average cost of generation—now roughly 4b=kWh—do not address costs arising from the spatial distribution and intermittency of wind. The greenfield analysis presented in this paper provides… CONTINUE READING
