  • Since the 1970s, wind turbines have improved to generate at least 100 times more power than their predecessors.
  • Current large turbines each have the capacities to generate roughly 5 megawatts.
  • With improvements to other parts of the power grid, such as power storage, Hahn foresees wind technology becoming crucial for responding to the electricity supply and demand volatility that markets experience.
