Wind energy to support almost 20% of global power supply: Report

Installed wind power capacity could grow 530% to reach 2,000GW by 2030, supplying 17-19% of global electricity, according to a report published in 2014 edition of the Global Wind Energy Outlook by Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and Greenpeace International.

By 2050, the capacity can swell up to supply 25-30% of global electricity, the report reveals.

In 2013, the total wind energy capacity was at 318GW, which is likely to increase by another 45GW in 2014.
