We proudly present Stefan Gsänger, Secretary General of World Wind Energy Association, WWEA, as a keynote and main moderator at #Winterwind2021!

Wind Power Around the World

Latest trends in global wind power deployment will be presented, based on statistics published recently by WWEA. In the year 2020, the world set a new record in new wind power installations, adding 93 gigawatts of new wind turbines within the year 2020. Some countries set new installation records, including China, the USA and Russia, while most European markets saw only modest growth. The strong growth comes as a surprise to some observers as many countries reported delays over the past year due to disrupted international supply chains and lack of labour availability. Developments will be analysed and current trends will be outlined.
