Global Wind Energy Outlook 2000 gigawatts by 2030

India Infoline

Global wind power capacity could reach 2,000 gigawatts by 2030, supply 17-19% of the world's electricity, create over 2 million jobs and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 3 billion tonnes a year, according to new analysis released by the Global Wind Energy Council and Greenpeace International. By 2050, wind power could provide 25-30% of global electricity supply. 

The analysis presents three visions of the future of the global wind energy industry out to 2020, 2030 and up to 2050. The scenarios compare the International Energy Agency's central scenario from its World Energy Outlook with a 'Moderate' and 'Advanced' scenario developed especially for this report, detailing how the global wind industry might deliver in terms of global electricity supply, carbon dioxide emission savings, employment, cost reductions, and investment.
