Experts from around the world will present latest developments in their countries during an online event.
According to preliminary wind power statistics published today by the World Wind Energy Association, the world set a new record in new wind power installations, adding 93 gigawatts of new wind turbines within the year 2020. Some countries set new installation records, including China, the USA and Russia, while most European markets saw only modest growth. The strong growth comes as a surprise as many countries reported delays over the past year due to disrupted international supply chains and lack of labour availability.
The global market for new turbines reached a total volume of 93 gigawatts, around 50% more than in the previous year 2019 and more than ever installed within a year. The total capacity of all wind farms worldwide has now reached 744 gigawatts, which is sufficient to generate 7% of the world’s electricity demand.
