Thanks. So it’s not at all true that “46 percent of the pipeline that exists today sits idle.”
From page 22, “Average capacity utilization between 1998 and 2013 was 54%”
If given a case where 100 wind turbines each with 1 MW rated capacity were each generating 540 KW, thus all 100 running at 54% of capacity, with 46% of capacity unused. That would be like claiming that 46 of 100 wind turbines sit idle when in fact all of them are in use.
