Indian Wind Energy Outlook 2011

According to the “Indian Wind Energy Outlook 2011” published jointly by GWEC, WISE and IWTMA; 65.2 GW of wind power could be installed in Indian by 2020, up from 13.1 GW at the end of 2010. This would attract around $10.4bn of annual investment to the sector, and create 170,000 “green-collar” jobs in manufacturing, project development, installation, operation, maintenance, consulting etc. At the same time, it would save 174 tons of CO2 every year. By 2030, the installed capacity could reach as much as 160.7 GW.

Analysis of the Regulatory Framework in Brazil 2011

With its large unpopulated land areas, a coastline of
9,600 km and excellent wind resources, Brazil is in a prime
position to become a true wind energy giant, and it is slowly
emerging as a key market for the international wind power
industry. While growth in 2010 was still small in absolute
terms, it represented a 50% increase in terms of total
installed capacity, and Brazil just recently reached the magic
threshold of 1,000 MW of wind power operating across the
