From wind turbines to wave power, renewables is a buoyant market. However, it's wind power that has made the most significant impact on how we generate and use energy - and we're becoming increasingly reliant on it as an energy source.
The United States has enough offshore wind resources to generate twice the amount of electricity used by the current population, or nearly 2,000 gigawatts annually.
Utilities' commercial and operational infrastructures are fast evolving. There is broad agreement that the Internet of Things (IoT) and digitization are altering the competitive landscape in significant ways.

Gregory Brew for OilPrice.com: Last week, Xcel Energy announced a multi-state wind capacity project, anticipated to be the largest in the United States. Spanning seven states, the project covers eleven new wind farms and would generate 3280 MWs at a cost of $3.5-4.4 billion. In its announcement, Xcel emphasized the cost-savings attached to wind power, arguing that it would save Xcel customers in the Midwest $7.9 billion over thirty years. This, rather than the environmental benefits of renewable energy, drove the company's mission statement: wind was cheap, not just clean.
