Global wind power capacity could reach 2,000 gigawatts by 2030, supply 17-19% of the world’s electricity, create over 2 million jobs and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 3 billion tonnes a year, according to new analysis released by the Global Wind Energy Council and Greenpeace International. By 2050, wind power could provide 25-30% of global electricity supply.
The Global Wind Energy Council and Greenpeace International have released the 2014 edition of the Global Wind Energy Outlook. The report shows that wind power could reach 2,000GW by 2030, and supply up to 17-19% of global electricity, creating over 2 million new jobs and reducing CO2 emissions by more than 3 billion tonnes per year.
Global wind capacity could reach 2000GW by 2030 and meet up to 19% of electricity demand, according to a report.
The Global Wind Energy Outlook, released by the Global Wind Energy Council and Greenpeace International, also states that the sector could create more than two million new jobs worldwide and slash CO2 emissions by more than three billion tonnes per year.
Wind power could be a global workhorse, providing up to 18.8 percent of global electricity needs by 2030, and even more beyond that, if it’s aggressively pursued, a new report concludes.
Under an “advanced scenario” modeled by the report, wind power would be green-lighted by governments around the world, and reach close to 2,000 Gigawatts of capacity by 2030.
At that level, …
China will drive the global wind power industry’s sharp recovery this year, but Brazil, South Africa and Mexico will be the world’s most exciting growth markets in the years to come, according to GWEC head Steve Sawyer.
Onshore wind is a cheaper source of power than gas, coal and nuclear when ‘external’ factors such as air quality, human toxicity and climate change are considered, a new EU report has found.According to a study by analysis firm Ecofys commissioned by the EU and released this week, onshore wind’s approximate cost per MWh is around €105, while gas can …
WORLDWIDE: They say that it gets darkest just before dawn. I just hope that’s true. As Gandhi allegedly said, “first they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win”. We’re definitely at stage three.
As we stand peering over the brink of the climate-change abyss, we are at the same time witnessing a renewable-energy revolution, …
The Global Wind Energy Council’s most recent Global Wind Energy Outlook says that global wind power could reach 2,000 GW by 2030 and provide up to 17 to 19 percent of global electricity.
The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and Greenpeace International have released the 2014 edition of the Global Wind Energy Outlook. The report shows that global wind power …
Federal Minister Sigmar Gabriel official inaugurated the leading international trade fair Wind Energy Hamburg on Monday evening, a premiere for Hamburg. “Wind energy has established itself worldwide, both from an economic and from an energy policy perspective,” said the German Vice-Chancellor. “This is a great success, and last but not least, a result of a furious development …
Germany’s Energiewende — the transition away from nuclear and fossil fuels — is far in advance of anything undertaken by other industrialised nations, says Steve Sawyer.
The Global Wind Energy Council secretary-general tells Recharge that every country should be playing close attention to the Energiewende “because I hope eventually we will all get to a future which is dominated by …
