The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) said in a report released in Beijing that wind power could supply as much as 20 per cent of the world’s total electricity by 2030 due to dramatic cost reductions and pledges to curb climate change.

If last year’s United Nations sponsored Paris Agreement on climate change leads to a worldwide commitment to the decarbonisation of the electricity sector, total wind power capacity could reach as much as 2110 gigawatts (GW) by then, nearly five times its current level, the industry group said.
