Wind power could supply up to 20 per cent of global electricity by 2030 owing to dramatic cost reductions and efforts to check climate change, said a Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) report released on Tuesday.

“By 2030 wind power could reach 2,110 GW, and supply up to 20 per cent of global electricity, creating 2.4 million new jobs and reducing CO2 emissions by more than 3.3 billion tonnes per year, and attract annual investment of about €200 billion,” GWEC said in a release.
