Abstract

The article analyses the emerging geography of wind energy on a state-by-state basis. The primary determinants of wind energy development among U.S. states are human geographic factors of population distribution, and resulting geography of electricity demand and transmission line accessibility, together with state-based energy policies, including electric utility restructuring, renewable postfolio standards, and procedures for siting and permitting wind farms.
