GWEC's annual report is the autoritative source of information on wind power markets around the world. The Global Wind 2009 Report contains installation figures for over 70 countries for the 2009 record year, as well as a five-year forecast up to 2014 and detailed chapters on the key countries.
<p><span style="font-size: 10pt;">This new report released by GWEC finds that wind power could play a key role in satisfying the world's increasing power demand, while at the same time achieving major greenhouse gas emissions reductions. By providing detailed wind power trajectories for all the world’s regions, it shows how global wind power capacity could reach 2,300 GW by 2030, providing up to 22% of the world's electricity needs</span>. </p>
