Industrial Info's U.S. Wind Power Wall Map Provides Key Info for Dynamic Industry

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - Jun 22, 2012) - New Product Release from Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--Industrial Info's recently released 6th Edition United States Wind Power Industry Wall Map provides a detailed view of the 614 operational windfarms in the U.S., representing more than 46,500 megawatts (MW) of capacity, an increase of 17% from 2011.

In addition to operational windfarms, the map also shows 76 windfarms under construction and more than 400 windfarms in the advanced and early planning stages. The windfarms under construction will add an additional 9,678 MW of power to the grid when completed, while those in the planning stages represent more than 87,000 MW of potential additional capacity.

This laminated, high-resolution map provides not only visual information about U.S. windfarm locations, but also provides detailed information, including:

  • windfarm owner
  • windfarm name
  • startup date
  • number of turbines
  • NERC region
  • designed capacity
  • make and model of turbines
  • contact information, and much more!

Windfarms under construction also include the contractor working on the project.

In addition to specific details regarding windfarms and turbines, the map also provides "macro" views and statistics of the U.S. wind power industry, such as the manufacturer's market share by both installed turbines and installed capacity, the inventory of installed turbines by models, and historical U.S. installed wind power capacity figures.

While the wind power sector remains a relatively new and developing form of renewable energy, many facilities have been in place for several years and are in need of after-market services. By 2006, more than 10,000 MW of wind power was installed in the U.S. This increased to 15,000 MW by the end of 2007 and 25,000 MW by the end of 2008, representing a vast number of facilities that will be in need of service and inspection in the near future.

As warranty periods for windfarms generally last two to five years, a tremendous amount of equipment is in need of inspection and servicing by third parties, making this map an absolute must-have sales and marketing tool for companies that provide service and materials for the wind turbine power generation industry.
