    WHAT WORLD WIND JUST DID AND CAN DO

    GWEC Global Wind Report – Annual Market Update released…; Wind power surges to new record

    17 April 2013 (Global Wind Energy Council)

    “The Global Wind Energy Council[GWEC]...Annual Market Update…[is] a comprehensive snapshot of the global wind industry at the end of 2012, along with a 5-year forecast out to 2017. Although policy uncertainty in the main OECD markets is a cause for concern, strong markets in China, India and Brazil, as well as in new markets in Latin America, Africa and the rest of Asia will drive global growth…”

    [Steve Sawyer, Secretary General, GWEC:] “Wind power may be variable, but the greatest threat to the continued stable growth of the industry is the variability and unpredictability of the politicians…[but] the fundamentals which have driven wind power to date are still in place: energy security, price stability, local economic development, climate change mitigation and local air and water pollution issues; and wind is now competitive in an increasing number of markets, despite fossil fuel subsidies…”

    “Record installations in the United States and Europe led global installations of 44.8 GW of new wind power globally in 2012, 10% more than was installed in 2011. Global installed capacity has now reached 282.5 GW, a cumulative increase of almost 19%. The forecast is for a modest downturn in 2013, however, followed by a recovery in 2014 and beyond; with global capacity growing at an average rate of 13.7% out to 2017, and global capacity nearly doubling to 536 GW.”

    “The US regained the #1 spot for global markets in 2012 for the first time since 2009, eking out China by 164 MW…[Due to PTC turmoil] the US market will drop precipitously in 2013…with substantial recovery expected in 2014. Europe’s record installations in 2012 are unlikely to be repeated in 2014, as a result of policy uncertainty… China, the world’s largest market with over 75 GW of installed capacity…[is targeting] 18 GW of installations in 2013…[India is expected] to return to growth in 2014. Brazil continues to lead the Latin American market, and may surpass 2 GW of annual installations in 2013; and both Mexico and Canada are expected to grow substantially…

    “There are also hundreds of MW under construction in South Africa, with another 500 MW expected to come to financial close this year, leading a surge in installations in sub-Saharan Africa which began in Ethiopia in 2012. In Asia, Pakistan, Mongolia, the Philippines and Thailand are all expected to see significant installations in 2013 and beyond…”
