GWEC's flagship publication is the industry's most widely read and is referred to as the wind industry's most credible source of data. This 76-page Global Wind Market Report provides a comprehensive snapshot of the global wind industry now present in more than 80 countries, 29 of which have more than 1,000 MW installed, and a further 9 with more than 10,000 MW. This year’s edition includes insights into the 20 top wind markets across the world, including new wind power hotspots Vietnam and Argentina, a five-year market forecast out to 2021, a chapter on the global offshore wind market and much more.
Join our one-hour live webcast moderated by our Secretary General, Steve Sawyer, who will take you through the key highlights from our flagship publication. Steve will be joined on the webcast by Adolfo Rebollo, CEO of Ingeteam, who will discuss market forecasts from a technological perspective, explaining how no technological revolutions are expected, but rather continuous evolutions that lower the wind turbine LCoE and bring greater quality and the possibility of managing generated energy. He will also emphasise the importance of investment in renewable energy and the necessity of stable long-term support policies.
Join us to hear about:
- What are the prospects for the global wind industry up to 2021?
- What are the key markets driving global growth?
- Where are the new wind ‘hot spots’ likely to be located?
- What’s the current status of the offshore wind market globally?
- How technological evolutions can lower the Levelised Cost of Energy.
The presentations will be followed by a Q&A with Steve Sawyer and Adolfo Rebollo.
The GWEC Global Wind Market Report 2016 is kindly sponsored by Ingeteam and Vaisala, and will be officially launched during our Windergy India event in Delhi on 25 April 2017.
