Media Invitation: Release of the Global Wind Energy Outlook 2012




Press Conference

14 November 2012, 10:00-11:30 at Kempiski Hotel, Room: Kaifeng, Beijing (50, Liangmaqiao Road, Chaoyang District, 100125 Beijing)

How will the wind industry look in 2020, 2030 and beyond? How much of the global electricity demand will it cover? How much CO² will be saved by wind power? How many people will be employed by the sector? What type of cost reductions and investment rates will be in place by 2020 and 2030?

The Global Wind Energy Outlook presents three different scenarios for the development of the sector and shows how crucial role wind power plays in fighting climate change, creating energy security and for economic development, providing up to 20% or more of global electricity supply by 2030. Yet for wind power to reach its full potential stable, long term energy policy is required.

Speakers:

Steve Sawyer, Secretary General, Global Wind Energy Council

Sven Teske, Director, Renewable Energy, Greenpeace International

LI Yan, Head of Climate & Energy Campaign, Greenpeace East Asia

Followed by Q&A.
