Bottlenecks in the global wind industry supply chain could leave the world with only three-quarters of the wind energy installations needed for a 1.5°C pathway by 2030, i.e. a 650 GW gap to meet climate targets.

Actions by governments in the Group of Seven (G7) can play a vital role in advancing inclusive, secure and sustainable energy transitions worldwide and addressing the climate crisis.

This report presents a detailed methodology for determining the amount of wind and solar capacity that is required for a country to align with the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C temperature goal. While the focus of the report is the method, it includes illustrative benchmarks for Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Germany, South Africa.

New figures clarify the workforce challenge facing the global wind industry with nearly 600,000 technicians needed during the next five years – with more than 240,000 of these roles new recruits to the industry.

The Status of Wind in Africa report, which provides a stocktake of the wind industry in Africa and delivers a forecast of the continent’s wind energy pipeline. The Status Report provides the foundation for policy discussions and project development to build on and drive the region’s wind development forward through the rest of this decade.

This study highlights the urgent need for India to rapidly scale up its solar energy capacity to achieve its renewable energy targets. This finding emphasizes the critical role solar power plays in India’s transition to clean and sustainable energy.

Worldwide employment in renewable energy reached 13.7 million in 2022, an increase of one million since 2021 and up from a total of 7.3 million in 2012, according to this new report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the International Labour Organization (ILO).

Government of India notified National Offshore Wind Energy Policy-2015 on 6 October 2015 for the development of offshore wind power in the country. The policy provides framework for offshore wind power development up to a seaward distance of 200 nautical miles from the baseline, i.e. up to the country's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

This brief from IRENA's Collaborative Framework on Ocean Energy and Offshore Renewables presents actionable solutions to address permitting bottlenecks and accelerate related processes for scaling up offshore wind deployment.

The Tamil Nadu Electricity Regulatory Commission (TNERC) has introduced a draft regulation to revise the deviation settlement policy concerning solar and wind power producers.
