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

By 2030, according to the report, wind power could reach 2,110 GW and supply up to 20% of global electricity – in turn, creating 2.4 million new jobs, reducing CO2 emissions by more than 3.3 billion metric tons per year and attracting an annual investment of about EUR 200 billion.
