Wind Turbine Systems Industry Worth $18.9 Billion by 2018 Says a New Research Report at RnRMarketResearch.com

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 02, 2014

US Demand to Skyrocket 55% Annually through 2018

US demand for wind turbine systems is forecast to increase 55 percent annually through 2018 to $ 18.9 billion, a nearly ninefold increase over depressed 2013 sales. Demand was adversely affected in 2013 by the record number of sales, valued at more than $ 25 billion, the previous year. The number of new installations in 2012 nearly doubled the amount of new installed capacity in 2011. This spike in sales was the result of electric utilities and other entities pushing up the timeline of many wind turbine projects to take advantage of the production tax credit, which was due to expire at the end of 2012. As a result, when the production tax credit was renewed in January 2013, there were few orders left in the pipeline. In fact, through the first three quarters of 2013, less than 75 megawatts of new wind power capacity was added in the US. The fourth quarter of 2013 saw a rush of installations similar to 2012, albeit to a significantly lesser degree, as firms again sought to take advantage of the expiring production tax credit. However, the production tax credit was left to expire at the end of 2013 and, as of March 2014, there has been no attempt to renew it.

Renewable Energy Standards to Drive Growth

Going forward, advances in wind turbine system sales will be driven by the need for most states to achieve renewable portfolio standard benchmarks through 2018 and beyond. In addition, growth will benefit from ongoing demand for small wind turbine systems from a small base, as well as continuing interest in developing renewable energy resources that are cleaner and not subject to fuel price shocks. The emerging off-shore wind industry, which is expected to see its first significant wind turbine installation during the forecast period, will provide further gains. However, the uncertain future of the federal production tax credit and other incentives for wind energy will serve to prevent even more robust sales.

Onshore Applications Nearly Universal

With the exception of a single small-scale prototype turbine off the coast of Maine in June 2013, all of the wind turbine systems installed in the US in 2013 were for onshore applications. Local opposition, concerns about cost, and a developing regulatory process have postponed the installation of the countrys first offshore wind farm. However, this is expected to change going forward, as a number of projects are progressing toward the installation stage.

All US Regions to Experience Growth

The Northeast had the lowest amount of installed wind energy capacity in the US in 2013, but is expected to benefit from the installation of the nations first offshore wind turbines. In addition, electricity costs in the Northeast are among the highest in the country, spurring the installation of renewable energy sources such as wind. On the other hand, the South has a lot of available land with strong wind resources for wind farm development, particularly in Texas, a state that also has favorable regulations that entice utilities to develop wind farms. The ongoing trend of constructing wind farms in the West South Central and Mountain subregions and delivering the electricity to neighboring states will provide further impetus for growth.

Fidelity & Guaranty Life Agrees to Sponsorship of World T.E.A.M. Sports Bicycle Ride

Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) April 04, 2014

World T.E.A.M. Sports announced today that Baltimore-based life insurance and annuity company Fidelity & Guaranty Life is returning for a second year as a corporate sponsor of the non-profits April 25-27 Face of America bicycle, hand cycle and recumbent ride from the Pentagon to Gettysburg.

The 110-mile, two day ride from Virginia to Pennsylvania honors military veterans and first responders who have served their country and often sacrificed their health and well-being in the line of duty. This years ride is expecting will see more than 150 veterans with disabilities from the United States and Canada, the greatest number for the ride since 2003.

It is through the support of companies such as Fidelity, Guaranty Life that we are able to continue our mission, said World T.E.A.M. Sports CEO and President Van Brinson. We welcome them back this year and look forward to building our relationship in the upcoming years.

Paul Tyler, Senior Vice President, Strategy and Corporate Development at Fidelity & Guaranty Life is thrilled that the company is sponsoring World T.E.A.M. Sports for the second year in a row. We love the mix of able-bodied and disabled athletes and the special focus World T.E.A.M. Sports has on supporting disabled veterans, he said. FGL has a strong presence in the Baltimore area and were especially looking forward to the 95 miles of ride through the beautiful Maryland countryside.

With an expected 560 riders from 39 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and three foreign countries, the Face of America ride is one of the largest commemorative bicycle rides in the capital region. Beginning as a cross-country bicycle ride in 2000, in which riders from each coast met at the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, the inclusive nature of the Face of America ride annually brings together riders with disabilities with those who are able-bodied.

Participating riders assist and support each other through the two days of cycling. Riders with disabilities are provided a helping hand or words of encouragement by able-bodied riders, particularly on the steeper hills of northern Maryland. On Sunday afternoon, the ride ends in historic Gettysburg, with a large outdoor lunch and celebration of the journey. For many of the participating veterans with disabilities, the ride offers an opportunity to reconnect with other veterans, eliminating feelings of isolation that many experience after departing their national service.

The 2014 Face of America Ride is supported through sponsorships from Capital One Bank, Booz Allen Hamilton, Benson Botsford LLC, BODYARMOR, FootStomp.com, Devens Recycling, Fidelity & Guaranty Life Insurance Company, General Electric, Penske Truck Rental, Revolution Cycles, Subway of the Bethesda Naval Hospital, Three Wire Systems LLC, and Vedder Price.
