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 60-page Global Wind Report will provide a comprehensive snapshot of the global wind industry now present in more than 90 countries, 30 of which have more than 1,000 MW installed, and a further 9 with more than 10,000 MW. This year’s edition will include insights into the 20 top wind markets across the world, with a feature chapter on new and emerging markets, a five-year market forecast out to 2022, 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 Javier San Miguel Armendariz, Global Wind Sales Director at Ingeteam, who will focus on how new technology can optimise the energy mix for any particular combination of renewable sources, provided the proper fiscal and regulatory frameworks are in place.
Join us to hear about:
- What are the prospects for the global wind industry up to 2022?
- 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 technology can optimise the energy mix for renewables.
The presentations will be followed by a Q&A with Steve Sawyer and Javier Armendariz.
The GWEC Global Wind Market Report 2017 is kindly sponsored by Ingeteam, and will be officially launched 25 April 2018.
