GWEC: Wind Energy Powers Ahead Despite Economic Turmoi

Brussels, 7 February 2012. The Global Wind Energy Council annual market statistics show that the wind industry installed just over 41,000 MW of new clean, reliable wind power in 2011, bringing the total installed capacity globally to more than 238,000 MW at the end of last year. This represents an increase of 21%, with an increase in the size of the annual global market of just over 6%. Today, about 75 countries worldwide have commercial wind power installations, with 22 of them already passing the 1 GW level.

Wind sector can quickly and inexpensively add its own supply lines

Hannover. Increasingly, delays in the grid expansion are turning out to be a bottleneck for Germany's energy transition. While renewable technologies continue to improve and become more efficient, grid expansion has been moving slowly for years. The increasing frequency with which wind turbines are being disconnected shows how critical the problem is. Here, something needs to be done quickly. In addition to speeding up grid expansion, we need to look into other alternatives.

Development of wind energy and political framework requirements in Germany

Interview with Sylvia Pilarsky-Grosch, President of the German Wind Energy Association, in "Energy Report" about the development and the targets of on- and offshore wind energy in Germany

Wind power is affordable and safe – but also faces tremendous challenges

Sylvia Pilarsky-Grosch, President of the German Wind Energy Association, says the wind sector faces tremendous challenges after the overall success in 2013. The German government plans to revise the Renewable Energy Act and specify target corridors for further growth. In both cases, the changes could pose risks for the energy transition’s future success.

Repowering

In repowering, modern turbines replace first-generation wind turbines. There are benefits at a number of levels. For instance, the number of turbines can be cut in half even as output is doubled, resulting in a more efficient use of sites when three times as much energy is produced. Over the next few years, the annual market could be as big as 1,000 MW, equivalent to around one half billion euros in sales.

German wind turbine market enjoys stable growth - The wind industry faces major challenges on the world market.

Berlin. The substantial growth experienced by the German wind energy industry last year was followed by a stable upwards trend on the home market in the first six months of this year. This was confirmed by the findings of a current manufacturer survey conducted by Deutsche WindGuard on behalf of Bundesverband WindEnergie e.V. (Federal Association of Wind Energy, BWE) and VDMA Power Systems: 414 new wind turbines with a total capacity of 1,004 megawatts went online.

Annual balance for wind energy generated in 2012: Germany records stable growth in turbulent global market environment.

Berlin, Germany. The German wind energy market recorded further stable growth in 2012. According to current data collected by Deutsche WindGuard on behalf of the German Wind Energy Association (BWE) and VDMA Power Systems (VDMA PS), 2012 saw the installation of 1,008 new wind turbines (2011: 895) with a total capacity of 2,439 megawatts (2011: 2,008). Connection of new capacity to the grid thus exceeded the previous year’s figure by around 20 percent.

Onshore wind power grows as forecast in 2013, but 2014 and 2015 remain highly uncertain

Berlin.  As forecast by the German Wind Energy Association (BWE) and VDMA Power Systems, the market for onshore wind turbines is growing. The statistics published by Deutsche WindGuard on behalf of BWE und VDMA Power Systems based on an up-to-date survey of manufacturers shows stable growth. Nearly 60 percent of the 2,998 megawatts of newly installed capacity was built in central and southern Germany. Wind power is growing especially strongly in these areas, but the north remains an anchor of stability for onshore wind power with over 40 percent of the market.

Embedding national energy policy in the European context

"European policy is becoming increasingly important for the German energy transition – and onshore wind power in particular." In addition to representing national positions, we therefore also have to influence European energy policy more. Energy policy has to be embedded in the European context," Jan Hinrich Glahr, vice president of German Wind Energy Association BWE, stated at a side event of the EWEA Wind Energy Conference in Barcelona.
