Wind power could meet a fifth of global power demand by 2030, creating 2.4 million new jobs and slashing greenhouse gas emissions by more than 3.3 billion tonnes.

That is the headline conclusion from the biennial Global Wind Energy Outlook report from the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), which predicts the industry is poised to mobilise up to €200bn a year as it emerges as one of the dominant players in the global energy industry.
