    “…it would require $197 billion in investments, especially in the infrastructure of interstate transmission.”

    I don’t think that level of investment is unrealistic. Investment in renewable energy no longer comes solely from fringe environmentalists, but also from big oil companies, like BP, and prominenet investment banks, like JPMorgan and UBS. With focused, sustained investment on the part of companies like these, 20% electricity from wind power by 2030 is a very reasonable goal.

    If you’re interested in learning more about renewable energy finance, you should attend the Renewable Energy Finance Forum-Wall Street (http://www.REFFWallStreet.com), held June 18-19 in New York City. One of the official event sessions will feature representatives from GE, JPMorgan, and NordBank in a discussion about the wind energy industry and the economic and policy factors influencing development.
