In the Global Wind Energy Outlook 2016 report, GWEC put forward four scenarios of installed wind capacity between 2015 and 2050.

For its most positive suggestion, the advanced scenario, a total of 5,806GW of wind capacity is predicted.

China would remain the world’s largest market with 1,789GW of wind power by 2050, with North America — including the US, Canada and Mexico — combining to have 919GW.

OECD Europe could have 703GW of wind by 2050, GWEC said, ahead of Latin America (481GW) and India (452GW).
