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. [...]

Acciona begins operation of hybrid wind & storage plant

ACCIONA Energía has started up the first hybrid plant for storing electricity in batteries that is part of a grid-connected wind farm in Spain. The company has also developed simulation software that will be used in the plant, for which it has been awarded the ‘Eolo Innovation’ prize for by the Spanish Wind Energy Association (AEE).

These two projects make the company a pioneer in this kind of solutions, aimed at facilitating the integration of variable-generation renewables into the grid and optimizing the management of the power produced.

Located in Barasoain (Navarra, northern Spain), the plant is equipped with a storage system consisting of two batteries located in [...]
