Global wind energy outlook 2010
1st October 2010
Topic(s): Wind energy
The Global Wind Energy Council and Greenpeace International present this 3rd edition of the Global Wind Energy Outlook for 2010, the successor to the Wind Force 10 and Wind Force 12 series which began in 1999. This report seeks to answer questions including: what role will wind power play in the coming two decades and beyond, how much of the global electricity demand will it cover, and how much CO2 will be saved by wind power in 2020 and in 2030? The report presents three scenarios for the development of the sector, and enacts them against two scenarios for electricity demand development to come up with a range of possible futures for the sector.
