German Q1 Onshore Wind Installations Becalmed (Int'l Report)
FA Wind
Date: 2019-05-01
Fachagentur-Windenergie (FA Wind), the German onshore wind agency, is reporting onshore wind installations in Germany dropped 87 pct in Q1 of 2019. The agency reported only 41 turbines totaling 134MW went online -- 13 pct of the average first quarter performance for between 2016 and 2018 period.

Thirteen Vestas turbines, 11 Enercon, seven Nordex, six Senvion, three ENO Energy and a single Siemens Gamesa model were spread across seven of the country's 16 states, with 13 turbines in the western state of Rhineland Palatinate alone. Eight turbines were part of repowering projects meaning net capacity growth was lower than 134MW.

Out of 730 turbines that won an allocation in 2017, only 35 have been commissioned, five of them in the first three months of 2019. The permitting situation has slightly improved with 111 turbines (413MW) getting the green light in the first quarter, a third more capacity than the average of the same periods of 2017 and 2018.

According to the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) shows North, Central and South America together installed 11.9 GW capacity of wind power in 2018,up 12 pct on 2017. In North America (Canada and USA) new capacity additions grew by 10.8 pct compared to 2017. In Latin America new capacity additions jumped 18.7 pct compared to 2017. The GWEC also notes:
  • the wind energy industry supports over 160,000 jobs in North America -- CanWEA and AWEA stats;

  • Brazil installed 2 GW of added wind farm capacity during 2018 and auctioned further capacity at world beating prices of as low as $22/MWh;

  • Mexico installed almost 1 GW of new wind turbines capacity, the highest capacity additions ever and now has a total capacity of 5 GW. The country expects to reach its target of generating 35 pct of its power capacity through renewables before 2024;

  • the North American offshore wind power market continues to develop with supply chain planning taking place, tenders for offshore leasing zones being conducted (Massachusetts), JV formations (EDF and Shell for New Jersey leasing zones) and industry players establishing offices (MHI Vestas).
