Global turbine market could hit $81.14B by 2019, report says
The worldwide market for turbines is poised to reach $81.14 billion in 2019, up from $76.54 billion in 2015, driven by stable government policies, falling costs and an increased concern for the environment, according to GlobalData. However, the market will likely fall off in 2020 due, in part, to the expiration of the wind energy Production Tax Credit, the report found. (U.K.) (1/16)

Wind Coalition Executive Director Jeff Clark said, "My great hope is that he will be a voice and will bring the success we've had to Washington, and help educate some of those folks who have never had an up-close look at how wind energy works."
