    Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

    The Wind and Other Electricity Generation industry is highly capital intensive. In 2017-18, for every dollar spent as wages, $1.82 is expected to be invested in capital. Significant capital is required to establish facilities that generate electricity using renewable energy sources. The industry's major players own assets worth several times their net annual revenue, which is indicative of the investment required to establish basic operating infrastructure. The necessary capacity that has to be installed to generate an economic output of electricity and ensure that operations are viable further increases the industry's capital intensity.
