Capturing economic opportunities from wind power in developing economies
This new report from the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) highlights the enormous potential of embracing the potential of wind energy. In just five years, five developing countries could add 3.5 GW of capacity, an extra US$12.5 bn for their economies and create 130,000 FTE work-years. The five countries – Argentina, Colombia, Egypt, Indonesia and Morocco, would also enjoy a virtuous cycle that continues to deliver benefits after this initial period. ‘Capturing economic opportunities from wind power in developing economies’ produced in collaboration with BVG Associates focused on five developing countries with significant untapped wind energy resource that could unlock rapid economic growth under green recovery measures.
