"The global market for solar PV, wind power and fuel cells will grow to US $89 billion in 2012 from the current level of $9.5 billion" according to an annual market forecast from Clean Edge. Last year, 6,500 MW of wind capacity was installed, which is equivalent to sic nuclear reactors or large combustion facilities.

Companies are looking into investing in clean energy, for example: MidAmerican Energy plans to build big wind farm across northern Iowa farm fields, the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has signed a 20 year contract with Invenergy to build 18 power-generating windmills in eastern Tennessee...
Renewable energy is regarded more and more as a profitable and rational investment in light of dramatic and continuing reductions in capital costs, the volatility of fossil fuel prices, and the environmental need for clean energy.
