  • A legal discussion on wind energy

    There are several issues affecting the future of the US wind industry but what could be most important are the passage of a Renewable Electricity Standard (RES) and the future of the grid. Can the wind industry thrive or even survive without an RES? Who is going to control siting decisions for new transmission lines – federal, state or local authorities? And who is going to pay for these ...

  • Energy answer: Blowing in the wind?

    When the federal government approved the Cape Wind project in April, allowing 130 power-generating turbines to be placed in the waters off Cape Cod, it gave a significant boost to the prospects of wind energy. The comparatively high costs of wind power, however, remain a problem. But in a study, MIT researchers have concluded that some of the price problems associated with wind power can be ...
