Why is USGS researching wind power? 

The USGS has extensive experience assessing energy resources, and it’s that expertise that makes the USGS qualified to assess nationwide effects of wind energy development.


The scientifically robust methods used by the USGS produce energy resource assessments that are publicly available and externally peer reviewed. The same methods are used in each and every assessment, which means that USGS assessments in different parts of the country have the same kinds of information that can be compared and contrasted.
