According to the 2012 Wind Technologies Market Report recently released by DOE, the United States was the fastest-growing wind power market in the world in 2012. More than 13,100 megawatts (MW) of new wind power capacity were connected to the U.S. grid in 2012, a new record for annual domestic wind power additions. Wind power represented the largest source of U.S. electric-generating capacity additions in 2012 (43% of the total) and $25 billion in new investments. Initial results of this report were highlighted as part of a presentation by Ryan Wiser at the 2013 Wind Powering America All-States Summit.
