    WORLD WIND IN RENEWED BUILD

    Wind Could Provide Almost One-Fifth Of Global Electricity By 2030

    Ari Phillips, October 22, 2014 (ClimateProgress)

    “Wind capacity could increase nearly seven-fold by 2030, reaching a total of more than 2,000 gigawatts and meeting almost 20 percent of electricity demand, according to [the Global Wind Energy Outlook 2014 from Greenpeace and the Global Wind Energy Council]…[W]ind power is already in 90 countries — with a total installed capacity of 318 gigawatts at the end of 2013 — [but] growth has been flat for the last several years at about 40 gigawatts per year due to the economic crisis, low growth in wealthy countries, and policy instability…[P]er-year installations could rise to as much as 90 gigawatts…The Chinese wind market posted strong growth last year and has great potential. The U.S. market is recovering and appears back on track for the short term…India, in desperate need of more electricity, is starting to look to wind…[T]he most exciting areas of new growth are in Brazil, Mexico, and South Africa. Brazil is set to install nearly 4 gigawatts in 2014 alone; energy reform in Mexico has set that country on course for a 2-gigawatt-per-year market for the next decade; and South Africa is putting up solid numbers, which could be the beginning for major wind development across the African continent…” click here for more
