  1. Despite Higher Costs Wind Rules Renewable Roost

    If you ask how much renewables can contribute right now to reducing carbon emissions and fossil fuel dependence, it's really just one renewable that counts: wind. Photovoltaic electricity is still far from competitive commercially, and as for the rest--thermal solar, geothermal, tidal energy, and so on--they only account for niche shares of the generation mix. Wind on the other hand already generates close to 1 percent of U.S. electricity and could provide as much as 20 percent by 2030, according to a recent government report.
