The Global Wind Energy Council’s (GWEC) biennial Global Wind Energy Outlook report states that by 2030 wind power could reach 2,110 GW accounting for 20% of global electricity.

This would create 2.4 million new jobs, reducing CO2 emissions by more than 3.3 billion tonnes per year, and attract annual investment of around €200bn.

The report states that decreased prices for wind, solar and other renewables mean that a decarbonised power sector is now technically feasible as well as economically competitive.
