1 FUTURE Vaughn Nelson Conservation and energy efficiency Renewable energy Carbon trading National Renewable Portfolio Standard US Goal: 20% of electric from wind by 2030,

2 FUTURE WIND 2020, World Wind 580,000 MW 2015, Texas22,000 MW WIND FARM DEVELOPMENT 1.LAND with good to excellent winds 2.ACCESS to transmission lines (proximity and carrying capacity) 3.CONTRACT to sell energy (Incentives, penalties, public education)

3 TEXAS PREDICTION

4 ELECTRIC GENERATION, MW % WIND Texas 101,00025,000 New Mexico7,2002,500 Oklahoma20,0006,000 In general, windy areas are far from major load centers. Need transmission to East, West, South (ERCOT).

5 TRES AMIGAS, 15,000 MW AC-DC-AC intertie

9 TX Panhandle Max 8,000 MW

10

11 FUTURE Wind Installed Capacity (2030)30,000 MW Only 1/4 of present contracts will be installed New contracts (a bunch) Landowners within 25 miles of major substations or high voltage lines have advantage. Curtailment will still be a problem. Flip of projects (resource option to wind farms)
