Wind power is gearing up to be the main engine for the global power sector’s growth, with expectations it will supply as much as 20% of world’s electricity by 2030, according to the latest forecast from the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC).

Installed capacity could reach 2,110GW by 2030, say the authors of the Global Wind Energy Outlook (GWEO), in the process creating 2.4 million new jobs, reducing CO2 emissions by more than 3.3 billion tonnes per year, and attracting annual investment of about €200bn ($220bn).
