Researchers from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, supported by both the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the U.S. Department of Energy, predict that by 2035, wind plant designs will embrace towers even taller than previously thought. The researchers gained this insight by analyzing the opinions of over 140 of the world’s leading experts, who predicted that the hub heights of onshore wind turbines will reach 130 meters by 2035. This new forecast is in contrast to previous predictions of 115-meter turbines, which could potentially result in changes to plant design choices.
