ABSTRACT
The author examines the wind power policies that facilitate wind energy development and expansion in the U.S. as well as compare those policies with that of Denmark and Germany. The author looked at the historical background for wind energy installation in each country to understand the rationale behind the implementation of policies and examined several categories of policies that have accounted for varying degrees of success in each country. He analyzed the specific problems of the U.S. tax code that hinder the country's wind power expansion. Furthermore, he offered suggestions based on the success of European countries in wind power development as to how future U.S. legislative decisions might be determined to prevent recurrence of policy mistakes that blocked wind energy development.
