GWEC: 200 GW of Wind in 2010

With around 40 GW of new capacity added this year alone, the world's installed wind power capacity is expected to reach close to 200 GW by the end of 2010 according to figures presented by Steve Sawyer, Secretary General of the Global Wind Energy Council, at a press conference during the Husum WindEnergy fair.

In its five -year market outlook, GWEC forecasts that global wind power will double between 2010 and 2014, reaching more than 400 GW. This increase will continue to be driven by growth in China, the US and Europe, but new countries are also entering the global wind map.

A longer term outlook for global wind power growth will be presented by GWEC in October during its China Wind Power 2010 conference in Beijing. This new edition of the ‘Global Wind Energy Outlook 2010’ will present three scenarios for the development of wind energy, showing how 1,000 GW of installed capacity could be operating world-wide by 2020, and as much as 2,300 GW by 2030.
