In 2006, Pres. Bush emphasized the nationżs need for greater energy efficiency and a more diversified energy portfolio. This led to a collaborative effort to explore a modeled energy scenario in which wind provides 20% of U.S. electricity by 2030. Members of this 20% Wind collaborative produced this report to start the discussion about issues, costs, and potential outcomes associated with the 20% Wind Scenario. The report considers some associated challenges, estimates the impacts, and discusses specific needs and outcomes in the areas of technology, manufacturing and employment, transmission

Wind power has recently experienced dramatic growth in the U.S., with further growth expected. However, several wind power-generating facilities have killed migratory birds & bats, prompting concern from wildlife biologists & others about the species affected, & the cumulative effects on species populations. This report assessed: (1) what available studies & experts have reported about the impacts of wind power facilities on wildlife in the U.S. & what can be done to mitigate or prevent such impacts; (2) the roles & responsibilities of gov't. agencies in regulating wind power facilities; & (3)

Wind power is widely regarded as a key component of an environmentally sustainable, low-carbon energy future because it is renewable, requires almost no water, and generates near-zero emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants. Nonetheless, wind power development can involve significant environmental and social impacts that need to be fully recognized and appropriately managed. Of particular concern are (i) biodiversity-related impacts upon birds, bats, and natural habitats; (ii) visual impacts, noise, radar and telecommunications interference, and other local nuisance impacts; and (ii
