Offshore Wind capacity grew steadily in 2020, but governments will need to act decisively to improve policy in order to scale up installations at the pace required to help the world meet its carbon emissions targets and avoid the worst effects of global heating, according to the Global Wind Energy Council, which launches its flagship Global Offs

Judicious planning of land use for solar and wind generation will help India to achieve its renewable energy ambitions, according to the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis’ (IEEFA) new report which examines how much land would be needed for the country to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.

Identifying potentially suitable areas for solar and wind project development can assist countries in reducing assessment costs. This allows the government to conduct more detailed evaluations that account for investment and operating costs of prospective plants in areas that are deemed most suitable.

Renewable energy technologies, such as wind turbines, solar photovoltaic panels and batteries, are essential for Europe's transition to climate neutrality. Deployment, maintenance and replacement of this infrastructure requires significant resources, including many substances included in the EU list of critical raw materials.

This study examines the decline in India’s wind energy generation during the peak monsoon season of 2020, outlines the micro and macro impacts of this anomaly and identifies potential solutions for climate-proofing the sector.

The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) produces comprehensive, reliable data sets on renewable energy capacity and use worldwide.

A new report released by the Global Wind Energy Council, in cooperation with The Renewables Consulting Group, finds that Vietnam is facing a crucial crossroads and has the opportunity to act now to accelerate deployment of offshore wind in this decade.

Wind and solar projects typically involve a mix of components manufactured in a few places at very large scales, but also components that can be produced in many countries. Given the boom in the construction of renewable energy projects, national governments are increasingly keen to maximize local economic benefits.

Transforming the energy sector requires a shift towards renewable energy sources. The world’s oceans are a source of abundant renewable energy, which can be tapped through offshore wind (with fixed and floating foundations, or airborne), floating solar photovoltaics (PV) and other emerging ocean energy technologies.

This report examines the evolving nature of energy security in the context of clean energy transitions in general and on the pathway to net-zero emissions in particular. It highlights emerging energy security concerns and provides recommendations to foster international collaboration, notably within the Group of Twenty (G20).
