This report presents and analyzes the financial and economic aspects of wind energy, from the very basic cost of wind energy as it leaves the farm to the effect large amounts of wind energy in the electric system have on the power price. The report considers the way wind energy is financed through support schemes, the extra investment risks that need to be covered, how wind’s external benefits can be weighted and compared to electricity production from fossil fuels.
