Ryan Wiser of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory gave a Webcast on July 9, 2008. The presentation lasted approximately 30 minutes and was followed by a half hour available for questions and answers.

During this Webcast Ryan Wiser of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory summarized key findings from the U.S. Department of Energy's recently released "Annual Report on U.S. Wind Power Installation, Cost, and Performance Trends: 2007 (PDF 4.0 MB) Download Adobe Reader." In following the contents of the report itself, the presentation provided a comprehensive overview of trends in the U.S. wind power market, with a particular focus on 2007. Drawing from a variety of sources, the presentation summarized the latest information on a variety of topics, including: wind project installation trends; wind industry developments; evolution of wind power sales prices; comparing the price of wind with wholesale market prices; installed wind project costs; wind turbine prices; wind project performance; O&M cost trends; and integration, transmission, and policy developments. Of particular note, the presentation highlighted data on project-level wind power pricing, installed project costs, and wind project performance that have not previously been summarized in as comprehensive a fashion as in the DOE report.
