The U.S. Department of Energy's Wind and Hydropower Technologies Program has released its first-ever "Annual Report on U.S. Wind Power Installation, Cost, and Performance Trends: 2006." This report - authored primarily by Ryan Wiser and Mark Bolinger of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory - provides an overview of trends in the U.S. wind power market, with a particular focus on 2006.

"With the market evolving at such a rapid pace, keeping up with trends in the marketplace has become increasingly difficult," says report co-author Ryan Wiser. "Yet the need for timely, objective information on the industry and its progress has never been greater."

Key areas of analysis in the report include wind project installation trends, wind industry trends, evolution of wind power sales prices, installed wind project costs, wind turbine prices, wind project performance, O&M cost trends, and integration, transmission, and policy developments.
