Feasibility Of Predominant Wind And Solar Energy Over The 48 United States

submitted by: RASEIBoulder
It is widely believed that wind and solar power are too variable in time to supply a large percentage of energy needs. This perception is based on wind and solar energy production over small domains, but is it true for a large domain? A study was conducted to determine the resource availability of wind and solar energy over the 48 US states. A meteorological assimilation model was used to estimate hourly wind and solar resources for three years – 2006 through 2008. Geographic data were...
