Will Congress Take the Wind out of Wind Energy's Sails?
A lack of wind won’t stall our future renewable energy economy, but Congress might.
Wind has its downsides. It’s intermittent; it’s too expensive. Fair points, but there are ways around them. For example the whole intermittency issue could be handled now by using spatially diverse sources; and once affordable energy storage technologies are developed, intermittency will likely become a non-issue.
