The International Wind Energy Council (GWEC) has said that after a short period of slowing down, the wind turbines are expected to double to meet international standards this year.
According to the group’s annual report, the world’s coastal wind capacity increased by 6.1GW last year, slightly from 6.24GW in 2019, but by 2021, wind power in China will increase by more than 12GW.
China For the third year in a row, more than 3G watts of offshore wind grids have led the world in new loads, and by the end of the decade it will be on the right track to pass the UK as the world’s largest offshore wind market.
The world’s largest economy has connected more than 3 watts of coastal wind to an electric grid, half of the world’s total, and has been cut off by small Asian countries such as Taiwan and Vietnam due to VV-19 delays.
China’s wind industry is set to load 7.5GW before government subsidies run out by the end of this year. He predicts a new record year of 2021 coastal wind growth.
Following the $ 8 billion investment in the world’s largest coastal window on Yorkshire Beach, England, the future of the industry is expected to be boosted by coastal wind finance in the coming year.
The Dogger Bank Coastal wind farm, built by SSE and Norway’s giant Equatorial Power, will use the world’s largest turbines to generate enough renewable energy to power 4.5 meters of British homes.
GWEC CEO Ben Bakwell said the coastal wind industry has continued to “break records, lower prices and innovate to new heights and depths” while bringing socio-economic benefits.
But as the G20 realized at the recent summit, we are in a state of climate change and we can’t just enjoy breaking records – the growth rate for our planet’s future is beyond our comprehension. Before. ”
GWEC expects the coastal wind industry to deliver 235GW of new capacity in the coming decades under current government policies, more than seven times the current global wind speed, but warned that growth is accelerating to meet global climate goals.
The report called for “political change” to plan and allow regimes and reduce the red tape.
According to an analysis by the International Energy Agency and the International Renewable Energy Agency, global warming could require wind turbines of 2050 to 2,000 GW in order for global temperatures to rise above 1.5C. Eliminate global warming standards.
“I believe the coastal industry can meet this challenge, but there is a clear goal and policy gap that countries need to address,” Buckwell said.
