Research and Markets: Expiration of Production Tax Credit will Impact the Wind Industry in the US

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/mbjqpl/expiration_of) has announced the addition of GlobalData's new report "Expiration of Production Tax Credit will Impact the Wind Industry in the US" to their offering.

Over the past couple of years, the US has passed many federal incentives to promote renewable energy. Among the various incentives available, Production Tax Credit (PTC) is the one that attracts huge investors and gives them the confidence to invest in the US wind industry. PTC is one of the important incentives which have been a growth engine for the wind industry. Since the PTC decree was passed in 1992, the wind energy sector in the US has grown from 1,680 Megawatts (MW) of installed capacity to around 55 GW of estimated installed capacity in 2012. In the last five years about 75,000 jobs have been created in the sector with an average annual investment of around $15 billion.

PTC is due to expire by December 31, 2012, which is a point of concern in the country. With the expiration of the policy it is expected that wind installations in 2013 will drop by more than 80%. Many wind turbine manufacturing companies are planning to shut down their plants and have already laid off workers in the country due to the expected expiration of the policy.
