Wind could supply nearly 20% of global power by 2030: Report
Installed wind power capacity could swell by 530 percent to 2,000 gigawatts (GW) by 2030, supplying up to 19 percent of global electricity, a report from a trade association and Greenpeace said on Tuesday.
It said installed wind energy capacity totalled 318 GW at the end of last year worldwide and provided around 3 percent of global electricity supply. Capacity is set to grow by another 45 GW to 363 GW this year.
