About the Webinar

GWEC’s latest report “Capturing Green Recovery Opportunities from Wind Power in Developing Economies”, released on the occasion of the G20 Finance Ministerial meetings and the G20 High-level Seminar on Sustainable Finance and Health taking place in Jakarta, reflects a study of wind energy potential in emerging economies around the world over the next five years, from 2022-2026.

The report highlights the vast and largely unexploited socioeconomic and environmental opportunities attached to wind energy. Five emerging economies in particular were selected as country studies: Brazil, India, South Africa, Mexico, and the Philippines.

The benefits of wind energy are wide-ranging and expand beyond clean power generation – they include sustainable job creation, public health cost savings which would be spent redressing the impacts of fossil fuel generation, water consumption savings which would otherwise be used for thermal generation, and a significant capital injection in a local value chain.

Join us at the official report launch event, and hear the report authors as well as experts from GWEC and national wind power associations unpack all the key findings and takeaways from the study.
