The Viet Nam Business Forum held alongside COP28 gathered key stakeholders to mobilize resources for accelerating green transition and unlocking the nation’s 600GW offshore wind potential.
IRENA/GWEC report identifies key permitting reforms that unlock offshore wind’s potential and accelerate the energy transition
The IRENA/GWEC report: “Enabling Frameworks for Offshore Wind – Scale Up Innovations In Permitting”
is the product of industry and governments coming together in the context of IRENA’s Collaborative Framework to find practical solutions to this key challenge.
The COVID-19 situation in Vietnam has created many hardships. This extends to supply chain bottlenecks for wind project components, workers prevented from reaching project sites for crucial inspections and activities, travel restrictions for foreign personnel, and other issues. As of August 2021, an industry survey conducted by GWEC estimates that 4,000MW of mainly onshore wind projects in Vietnam are severely challenged by these extenuating circumstances, and are now at risk of missing the November deadline for the wind Feed-in Tariff (“FiT”).
GWEC and Costa Rican energy agencies join forces to create a route for offshore wind development in Costa Rica
Today, the Global Wind Energy Council together with the Vice-ministry of Energy and Environmental Quality (MINAE) of Ministry of Environment and Energy and Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE) have kicked-off a joint initiative to build knowledge about the local benefits of offshore wind and explore pathways for its future development and growth in Costa Rica.
Offshore wind in Vietnam at a crossroads: Policy clarity needed for the next transition phase
The leading CEOs of the global wind industry have united to call on G20 members to show leadership in the climate crisis by raising national ambitions and urgently laying out concrete plans for increased wind energy production to replace fossil fuels.
Countries around the world need to urgently scale up deployment of wind power in order to address the climate emergency, according to the Global Wind Coalition for COP26, which officially launches today on Global Wind Day. The wind industry’s new campaign for COP26 asks governments, companies, and people across the world one critical question: Wind. Are You In?
A new report, India Wind Energy Market Outlook 2025, jointly released today by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and MEC Intelligence (MEC+) finds that India, the world’s fourth-largest wind power market, is expected to add nearly 20.2 GW of new wind power capacity between 2021-2025.
