The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) released its Global Wind Report: Annual Market Update, showing a maturing industry successfully competing in the marketplace, even against heavily subsidized traditional power generation technologies.

Wind energy continues to grow globally, with wind the most competitively priced technology in many if not most markets. According to the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), the inevitable transition to renewable energy continues to gather momentum with the total global wind energy installation now at almost 540 gigawatts. The report published by the Global Wind Energy Council ays that Europe, India and the offshore sector have had record years. Chinese installations were down slightly to 19.5 Gigawatts (GW), but the rest of the world made up for most of that.

Indian Wind Energy – A Brief Outlook is a joint publication by GWEC and IWTMA. The report examines the current status of wind power development in India, assesses the potential for future growth, and highlights the socio-economic, environmental and energy security benefits.

GWEC launched its Global Wind Market Report on the state of the global wind industry on 25 April 2017 at Windergy in Delhi. This flagship publication is the industry’s premiere global report and most widely used source of data. The report provides a comprehensive snapshot of the global wind industry now present in more than 90 countries.

China installed a total of 23 gigawatts of wind energy in 2016, nearly half the total 54 gigawatts that was brought online around the world, and continues to expand its lead over its nearest competitors, the United States and Germany. The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) published its annual statistics report for the global wind energy industry this week, revealing that a total of 54 gigawatts (GW) worth of wind energy was brought online in 2016, bringing the global cumulative total up to nearly 487 GW.

The Global Wind Energy Council released its biennial Global Wind Energy Outlook, outlining scenarios where wind could supply 20% of global electricity by 2030. The report looks at four scenarios exploring the future of the wind industry out to 2020, 2030 and 2050.

The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) launched a new report: “Supply Chain, Port Infrastructure and Logistics Study” for offshore wind development in the states of Gujarat and Tamil Nadu in India. This study is a significant step forward in preparing a roadmap for offshore wind power in India by the GWEC led FOWIND consortium.

Wind-power projects around the world accounted for almost half of the new electrical generating capacity installed in 2015, as the cost of turbines fell and pressure mounted to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

China installed half of all new wind capacity worldwide last year, according to the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC). The country added an “astonishing” 30.5 gigawatts (GW) to boost installations to 145.1GW. It overtook the EU total for the first time, which added a record 6GW to increase its capacity to 141.6GW. China is ramping up renewable energy in a bid to limit smog-causing pollution from coal plants and act on climate change. Falling costs increasingly make the technology competitive with fossil fuels.
