Wind Energy Industry News

Wind energy is a source of clean electricity and wind plants emit no air pollutants or greenhouse gases. Driven by the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and secure home-grown energy supplies, wind energy is the world's fastest growing renewable energy industry, developing more wind projects than ever before. That means hundreds of manufacturing facilities and many new jobs.

Wind power has now established itself as a mainstream electricity generation source, and plays a central role in an increasing number of countries' immediate and longer term energy plans. After 15 years of average cumulative growth rates of about 28%, the commercial wind power installations in about 80 countries at the end of last year totalled about 240 GW, having increased by more than 40 times over that same period. Twenty two countries have more than 1,000 MW installed.

According to an analysis by the SUN DAY Campaign of data just released by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), natural gas dominated new electrical generating capacity in 2018. However, renewable energy sources (such as wind, solar, geothermal, hydropower) seem poised to swamp fossil fuels as new generating capacity is added over the next three years.
