In 2018, the offshore wind market grew by 0.5% to 4.49 GW of new installations, and the total installed wind capacity saw an increase of 9.6% compared to the end of 2017. So, what kind of effect this had on our ongoing production efforts?
GWEC has released their latest global wind energy statistics. Total new installed capacity of wind energy reached 51.3 GW in 2018.
The Global Wind Energy Council’s latest data shows the Americas installed 11.9 GW more onshore wind capacity in 2018, an increase of 12% on last year.
The key message of China Wind Power 2018 was “Preparing for the pathway to grid parity.” Technological innovation and lowering the cost of energy are the two main ways to tackling the challenges of grid parity.
