The Global Wind Industry – Historical, Present and Future Generation Statistics to 2030

Growth in the wind energy sector is primarily driven by one market, China. The United States of America ranks second, Germany and Spain rank third and fourth, respectively. India remains in fifth position with growth almost consistently matching the global average.

The contribution of offshore power continues to gain momentum. A more rapid globalisation of wind energy is becoming evident. Countries previously without wind generation capacity, or with very limited capacity, are now looking at far more ambitious plans than the early adopters considered when wind energy was in its relative infancy, and putting in place targets and fiscal incentives to reach them.

While [...]

New study shows potential for wind power on coldest days

A new study by climate scientists – published in the journal Environmental Research Letters – has advanced the understanding of the potential for wind power to provide energy during the coldest spells of winter weather.

The team, which involved scientists from the Met Office Hadley Centre, Imperial College London and the University of Reading, compared wind power availability with electricity demand in winter and they found an interesting result.

Hazel Thornton, of the Met Office Hadley Centre, is one of the paper’s authors. She said: “During winter in the UK, warmer periods are often windier, while colder periods are more calm, due to the prevailing weather patterns. [...]

New White Paper from IEC assesses the worldwide needs, benefits, policies and preconditions for Global Energy Interconnection

Geneva, Switzerland, 16 February 2017 – Energy is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces. However, one fifth of the world population still lacks access to energy and 3 billion people rely on wood, coal or animal waste for cooking and heating. Today, sustainable energy and climate change are big global concerns.

 

The interconnection of grids would open up an unprecedented opportunity to globally share the resources of the whole planet, bringing clean energy to everybody, everywhere in the world.

 

Global energy interconnection (GEI) is technically highly complex. It will require a level of dependability [...]

African Utility Week returns to Cape Town in May and showcases how community scale projects are the continent’s energy future

“The power and energy landscape in Africa is undergoing significant change” says Evan Schiff, African Utility Week event director, adding that current trends include “the availability of private investment for power and energy projects, the fast development of energy storage, renewable energy is becoming cheaper, gas that is an increasingly attractive  mode of power generation in Africa, and that in the next 10 years, nuclear will become an increasingly important mode of base-load power generation.”

The investment, trade and development opportunities in the sub-Saharan Africa’s electricity sector are estimated at $835 billion of capital investment, $490 billion for [...]
