• 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
GWEC to launch GWEC India to help develop India’s vast wind power potential and support green recovery
Today, the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) announced that they will establish GWEC India to work with government and stakeholders to renew momentum around wind power development and support India in achieving its ambitious renewable energy targets. The new industry association will focus on building out India’s huge potential and local supply capacity, addressing regulatory bottlenecks, sharing best international practices and experience and facilitating dialogue and cooperation between government and industry stakeholders.
Today, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) signed a cooperation agreement in order to join efforts aimed at increasing the adoption and deployment of wind and renewable energy worldwide.
According to the latest market outlook published today by GWEC Market Intelligence, 71.3 GW of wind power capacity is expected to be installed in 2020 despite the impacts of COVID-19, which is only a 6 per cent reduction from pre-COVID forecasts. This is a significant increase from original predictions that expected wind power installations to be reduced by up to 20 per cent due to the pandemic, demonstrating the resilience of the wind power industry across the globe.
The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and the European Chamber of Commerce Taiwan (ECCT) are bringing together Taiwan’s policymakers, offshore wind leaders, investors and other stakeholders over the next three days to power the growth of Taiwan’s burgeoning offshore wind market at the Global Offshore Wind Summit – Taiwan Virtual 2020.
The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), joined by Greenpeace and REN21, has announced the winner of the first edition of the “REvolutionaries: The Steve Sawyer Memorial Award,” launched in 2020 to honour the life’s work of late GWEC CEO Steve Sawyer, a pioneer of the global energy transition.
GWEC calls on Vietnamese government to extend wind tariff and maintain regional leadership in clean energy investment
An industry alliance led by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) has called on the Government of Vietnam to urgently extend the wind energy Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) scheme. Vietnam’s wind industry is already facing a slowing of investment in 2020 because of uncertainty around the investment framework, and further delays to the FiT extension will hinder supply chain development and cost reduction in the emerging wind market, and ultimately undermine Vietnam’s goal of affordable, reliable and clean electricity
