Women in Wind 2022 program welcomes 21 new participants for this year’s scheme
• Global Wind Organisation (GWO) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) have signed a two-year partnership agreement to highlight the importance of safety, training and job creation to power wind energy development and the global energy transition.
The Global Wind Energy Council has published the Global Wind Report 2022, which shows the wind industry enjoyed its second-best year but scaling-up for Net Zero requires policy breakthrough
The Global Wind Energy Council responds to the rallying call within IRENA’s 2022 edition of their World Energy Transitions Outlook
Today the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and the Japan Wind Power Association (JWPA) have announced that they have formed a joint Japan Offshore Wind Task Force to drive offshore wind growth in Japan. As of December 2019, Japan has 65.6MW of offshore wind capacity, including five floating turbines totalling 19MW. However, the full scale of Japan’s offshore wind potential has yet to be unlocked due to regulatory and industrial bottlenecks, both of which this Task Force aims to address.
Francis Jayasurya, an experienced professional in the India’s wind energy sector, has joined the GWEC team as India Director to support the organisation’s activities in driving forward India’s wind energy market.
The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) is pleased to welcome Mingyang Smart Energy Group as its latest board level member. Mingyang is one of the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturers and clean energy integrated solution providers with over 17GW of wind energy capacity installed globally as of 2018.
The Global Wind Energy Council and OLADE, the Latin American Energy Association, have announced they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to drive the energy transition in Latin America. Both organisations have the objective of promoting energy security and the energy transition in Latin America, and this MoU will establish the basis for cooperation for the design and implementation of projects as well as reports and roadmaps for renewable energy development in the region.
Today, the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), Thailand Wind Energy Association (ThaiWEA) and United States Agency for International Development (USAID) joined forces in Bangkok to hold the first Thailand Wind Energy Roundtable. This roundtable discussion brought together Thai government stakeholders and industry players active in the region to constructively discuss how to strengthen onshore wind development in Thailand. With 1.5 GW of onshore wind already installed, the country has a technical potential of 13-17 GW which could be developed by increasing target ambitions and support schemes for wind energy in Thailand’s Power Development Plan (PDP).
GWEC and regional partners to accelerate wind energy growth in South East Asia through new cooperation
The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) has signed a series of three MOUs with regional partners in Singapore, in order to support and accelerate the growth of wind energy in South East Asia, with a focus on Vietnam and Thailand. The agreements were signed with: Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS); Binh Thuan Wind Energy Association (BWEA); and Thai Wind Energy Association (ThaiWEA).
