Fundamental Issue: Intermittency Despite robust wind development in the U.S., wind faces a nearly insurmountable issue: intermittency. Simply put, the intermittent nature of wind makes it difficult to harness effectively on a power grid that is finely tuned to deliver electricity around the clock. The down side of this intermittency is clearly evident in the actual performance data of wind turbines already installed. Wind performs poorly across all traditional utility metrics for generating resources. For reliability, stability, forecast ability, proximity . . . Complete article »
