The explosion in wind energy prominence came from two different fronts, though, with a burgeoning onshore wind energy sector that’s becoming increasingly prevalent and important across the Midwestern United States on one end and a nascent offshore wind energy field looking to take hold in coastal states.
While it would perhaps be simple to assume that the only difference in onshore and offshore wind technology is the location, the reality is that the two different types of wind power have different advantages and disadvantages, unique considerations, and independent future projections. Understanding these differences is key to recognizing the manner in which wind power will upend the U.S. power industry.
