Global wind capacity growth must triple over next decade: Global wind power installations need to increase three times faster over the next decade than the current rate to help countries to remain on a net zero route & restrain global warming.

This is as believed by a new analysis by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), this indicates a minimum of 180GW of new wind energy is required annually to bypass the worst effects of climate change.

The report reveals the wind industry installed 93GW of new wind in the previous year, which helped the current total worldwide capacity attain 743GW.

Specialists remark that the growth in new wind capacity in 2020 was boosted primarily by the Chinese & US installations amounting to 75% of the total.

The GWEC evaluates that the current installed wind capacity helps countries dodge over 1.1 billion tonnes of CO2 each year, equal to South America’s total annual carbon emissions.

The group calls on policymakers to take immediate action to hasten more installations by raising investments & making licencing and permitting processes simpler for wind projects.

Ben Backwell, Chief Executive Officer at GWEC, stated: “Our current market forecasts show that 469GW of new wind power capacity will be installed over the next five years.

“But we need to be installing at least 180GW of new capacity every year through 2025 to ensure we remain on the right path to limit global warming well below 2°C, meaning we are currently on track to be 86GW short on average each year.”
