About the Webinar

On 4 March, GWEC Market Intelligence will release its latest data on wind power markets trends and forecasts in Africa and Middle East, a promising growth region for the industry.

Africa and the Middle East installed nearly 1 GW of wind power in 2019, and GWEC Market Intelligence expects installation levels in the region to reach new highs in 2020, with wind turbines installed in new emerging markets in the region.

Although the region only accounts for 1% of total wind power capacity globally, the potential for wind energy in Africa and the Middle East is formidable. A new study by the IFC and Everoze found that the African continent alone has a technical wind power potential of over 59,000 GW – enough to fulfil the continent’s energy demand 250 times over!

Join us for a webinar on 4 March at 10:00-10:45 CET to hear GWEC Market Intelligence experts discuss wind power’s continued growth in the region in 2020, the markets with the highest potential for wind power, and learn more about challenges and opportunities to tap into wind power’s potential in Africa and the Middle East.

Topical Reports

A Study on the Pricing Policy of Wind Power in China 2006

The report “A Study on the Pricing Policy of Wind Power in China” reviews the development of wind power and the pricing system in China. In particular, it looks at the existing wind concession projects and sums up the lessons learned. The report finds that the current tender system for wind pricing needs to be improved in order to build a fair environment for the wind industry competition. Special attention should be paid to restricting the phenomenon of unreasonably low and unreasonably high wind tariffs, to facilitate the long-term development of the Chinese wind industry.

China Wind Power Report 2007

China could lead the world in wind energy development and play a larger role in combating climate change, according to a report by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), Greenpeace and Chinese Renewable Energy Induistry Association (CREIA). The China Wind Power Report 2007 predicts that China’s installed wind power capacity could reach 122 GW by 2020, equivalent to the capacity of five Three Gorges Dams.

Global Wind Report 2008

The Global Wind 2008 Report includes a five year forecast for the development of the global wind energy market. In the past, these projections have regularly been outstripped by the actual performance of the sector and have had to be adjusted upwards. Despite the economic downturn, this year is no exception.

Global Wind Energy Outlook 2008

The ‘Global Wind Energy Outlook 2008’, published by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and Greenpeace International, looks at the global potential of wind power up to 2050 and found that it could play a key part in achieving a decline in emissions by 2020, which the IPCC indicates is necessary to avoid the worst consequences of climate change. By 2020, wind power could save as much as 1.5 billion tonnes of CO2 every year, which would add up to over 10 billion tonnes in this timeframe.

Analysis of the Regulatory Framework in Brazil 2011

With its large unpopulated land areas, a coastline of
9,600 km and excellent wind resources, Brazil is in a prime
position to become a true wind energy giant, and it is slowly
emerging as a key market for the international wind power
industry. While growth in 2010 was still small in absolute
terms, it represented a 50% increase in terms of total
installed capacity, and Brazil just recently reached the magic
threshold of 1,000 MW of wind power operating across the
country

Indian Wind Energy Outlook 2011

According to the “Indian Wind Energy Outlook 2011” published jointly by GWEC, WISE and IWTMA; 65.2 GW of wind power could be installed in Indian by 2020, up from 13.1 GW at the end of 2010. This would attract around $10.4bn of annual investment to the sector, and create 170,000 “green-collar” jobs in manufacturing, project development, installation, operation, maintenance, consulting etc. At the same time, it would save 174 tons of CO2 every year. By 2030, the installed capacity could reach as much as 160.7 GW.
