North America Wind Power Outlook 2019
Published: August 30, 2019 Content info:

This report studies the key drivers and barriers for new wind power installations in North America, including sub-regional market dynamics. The analysis focuses on macro conditions and regulatory frameworks, which underpin the 10-year market outlook and three forecast scenarios (bull, base and bear) for each market. Market models are illustrated, demonstrating the critical forces that are shaping demand for new wind power generation assets. Our Power & Renewables reports and data provide deep insight into the current and future state of electricity generation.
