Special Report: The Rising Cost of Wind Development

Increased worldwide demand for commodities such as copper, steel and concrete has significantly driven up the cost of wind energy. As a result, project costs have gone up as much as 50% over the last two years. Despite this significant cost increase, the industry is thriving and gaining acceptance by utilities, governments and citizens. We’ve got a special report on the status of the wind industry.

Also in the podcast: We’ll talk with Jeff Broin, President and CEO of POET, the largest dry mill ethanol producer in the U.S. He’ll give us his take on the growing environmental concerns over corn-based ethanol and the future of next-generation cellulosic fuels.
