An enduring myth, also in wind energy circles, is that it is neither technically nor economically feasible to run power systems based largely on wind generation. A number of studies by utilities with good experience of wind operation are gradually putting paid to the technical myth: there is no technical limit. In an analysis this month, we demonstrate that the so-called economic barrier barely exists either, or only if a rise in power system regulating cost that adds just 10% to consumer bills is too high a price to pay. Our conclusions are based on a worst case scenario for wind.
