Texas Renewable Energy Market Trends

Karbone Market Research Briefs

Texas is the nation’s leader for wind power installed capacity, having surpassed the 2025 target of 10 GW of renewable energy to reach over 12 GW of wind alone in 2012. The majority of this wind power capacity is in West Texas where wind efficiencies are higher and the population is sparser, improving the ease of site selection and permitting – note that siting has proven a major impediment to renewable build-out in other areas of the country, such as New England.
