U.S. Department of Energy's 2011 Wind Technologies Market Report Released

Yesterday, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) released its report titled, 2011 Wind Technologies Market Report.  The report, which was produced by the DOE's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory discusses how,  "the United States remained one of the world’s largest and fastest growing wind markets in 2011, with wind power representing a remarkable 32 percent of all new electric capacity additions in the United States last year and accounting for $14 billion in new investment."  For those unfamiliar with it,  
[t]he report, which has been issued annually since 2007, analyzes a range of developments in the wind market, including trends in wind project installations, turbine size, turbine prices, wind project costs, project performance, and wind power prices. The report also details trends in project financing, a key concern for the wind industry in the current economic climate, as well as trends in project ownership, public policy, and the integration of wind power into the electrical grid. The report provides the wind industry, state and local policy makers, and the general public with valuable information on the state of wind power in the United States.
The DOE does not have one centralized location for its past reports, however, previous editions on the Wind Technologies Market Reports have been collected below:
