 Taking a bottom-up approach, this report examines seven primary drivers of wind turbine prices in the United States, with the goal of estimating the degree to which each contributed to the doubling in turbine prices from 2002 through 2008, as well as the subsequent decline in prices through 2010 (our analysis does not extend into 2011 because several of these drivers are best gauged on a full-year basis due to seasonality issues). The first four of these drivers can be considered, at least to some degree, endogenous influences ? i.e., those that are largely within the control of the wind industry ? and include changes in: 1) Labor costs, which have historically risen during times of tight turbine supply
  2) Warranty provisions, which reflect technology performance and reliability, and are most often capitalized in turbine prices
  3) Turbine manufacturer profitability, which can impact turbine prices independently of costs
  and 4) Turbine design, which for the purpose of this analysis is principally manifested through increased turbine size. The other three drivers analyzed in this study can be considered exogenous influences, in that they can impact wind turbine costs but fall mostly outside of the direct control of the wind industry. These exogenous drivers include changes in: 5) Raw materials prices, which affect the cost of inputs to the manufacturing process
  6) Energy prices, which impact the cost of manufacturing and transporting turbines
  and 7) Foreign exchange rates, which can impact the dollar amount paid for turbines and components imported into the United States.
