Wind energy, primarily onshore wind, has attained maturity and it is a matter of pride for the global wind industry where it has reached today. This view was expressed by Mr Steve Sawyer, Secretary General, Global Wind Energy Council as part of his opening remarks on the third day of the first Renewable Energy Global Investors Meet and Expo (RE-INVEST).
Speaking at the session titled ‘Grid Connected Wind Power With Focus on Offshore’,
Mr Sawyer said, “We are happy to see where we have come in the on-shore wind
energy generation. Currently, the off-shore wind industry is where the on-shore wind
industry was, way back in 1997-98. Just as the on-shore wind industry has matured, I am
sure that the off-shore wind industry will also grow in near future.”
