GWEC Comments on China's Wind Power Growth (Int'l. Report)
Global Wind Energy Council
Date: 2021-03-19
According to the Belgium-based Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), in 2020 China broke the world record for most wind power capacity installed in a single year with 52 GW of new capacity -- doubling the country's annual installations compared to the previous year.

"The incredible and rapid growth of wind power in the region has been led by China, which now has more wind power capacity than Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America combined. We were expecting an installation rush in China last year due to the phase out of the onshore wind Feed-in-Tariff by the end of 2020, but the Chinese wind market exceeded our original forecasts by over 73 percent," the GWEC noted. "Top-down policies requiring wind and solar be integrated into the power grid, rather than subsidy support, would probably drive the greater transition to renewables", the GWEC added.

According to China's National Bureau of Statistics , the share of clean energy consumption in China has risen from 19.1 pct in 2016 to 24.3 pct in 2020. (Source: GWEC, PR, Xinhua, Mar., 2021) Contact: Global Wind Energy Council, www,gwec.net

Wind Energy and Economic Recovery in Europe (Int'l. Report)
Wind Europe
Date: 2020-10-16
"Wind energy is an important asset for the European economy. It has been resilient in the COVID crisis and therefore it can play a significant role in a green economic recovery. But wind creates additional benefits beyond jobs and value to the economy. It directly benefits communities living near wind farms.

"This report shows how the wind industry places people at the centre of such a green recovery. It also presents the state-of-play of the European wind industry and its global competitiveness. It demonstrates that the industrial footprint in Europe is ready to expand if there is a strong domestic market and an effective industrial policy. It also covers the socio-economic benefits of WindEurope's wind energy deployment scenarios to 2030 and shows how wind energy can co-exist with local natural protection and other economic sectors like fishing, agriculture, and aviation.

Among the report's findings: In 2019 wind energy represented 300,000 jobs in the EU -- 75 pct of these are in onshore wind and 25 pct in offshore wind. The European wind industry has an annual turnover of €60 billion, 65 pct of this adds value to the EU economy.

In Sweden, Gothenburg-based laminated wood technology engineering specialist Modvion and wind energy major Vattenfall are reporting a letter of intent to enter into a business development project for evaluating building technology and commercialization of wooden onshore wind towers for Vattenfall.

Vattenfall's portfolio has the potential of approximately 5000 MW for projects on land, under development or construction in its various markets.

Lighter weight wooden towers can be constructed in modules and assembled on site allowing higher towers to be built while still using normal access roads for transportation. Wooden designs also enable radical reductions in emissions by replacing emission-heavy material such as steel and concrete, according to the Vattefall release.

In Germany, Stuttgart-headquartered power producer EnBW reports it expects to increase its output in Germany by almost 90 MW in 2020 through the acquisition of existing wind turbines in Saxony-Anhalt and Brandenburg and the further development of its own projects.

As previously reported, EnBW acquired 20 wind turbines with an output of 36 MW in Saxony-Anhalt and plans to replace the older wind turbines with more modern and powerful units. In addition, EnBW has recently acquired another wind farm with a capacity of 18 MW in Brandenburg. Furthermore, EnBW is developing its own projects in Germany in 2020 that have a total output of 33.5 MW and will be placed into operation by the end of the yearIn order to help push forward the expansion of wind power in Germany. EnBW has also joined with 50 partner organisations and companies to form the sector-wide initiative Windforfuture -- a wind energy support campaign by the German wind energy sector.

Half of the EnBW generation portfolio will be comprised of renewable energies by the end of 2025. In the area of wind energy, the company offers planning, construction, operation, maintenance and servicing from one source. A current focus of its onshore business activities is also repowering. The goal is to be operating onshore and offshore wind power plants with a total output of 4,500 megawatts by 2025.

Emerald Isle Projected to Miss 2030 Renewables Goal (Int'l.)
Ireland
Date: 2020-09-14
According to the Irish Wind Energy Association's recently released Building Onshore Wind report, Ireland will miss its target of 70 pct renewable energy by 2030 due to its "broken" planning system that is in need of "urgent reform."

The report notes that although Ireland has the "highest share of electricity demand met by onshore wind in the world" -- supplying almost 37 pct of the country's electric power needs in the first six months of the year -- if it takes a "business as usual" approach to planning the best it can hope for is about 5.5 GW of onshore wind by 2030 -- short of its climate change commitments. Ireland would need an additional 4.0 GW of onshore wind in the next 10 years to reach its goal, totaling 8.2GW overall.

UK Climate Assembly Rejects CCS (Int'l. Report)
CCS
Date: 2020-09-11
The UK's Climate Assembly has released its recommended approaches to meeting the UK's legally binding target to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.

Of the recommendations, 95 pct of climate assembly members backed the use of offshore wind technology to contribute towards the country's climate neutrality goal while 81 pct supported solar power and 78 pct onshore wind and 40 pct backed the use of bioenergy.

22 pct favored the continued use of fossil fuels combined with carbon capture and storage (CCS) which "only provides a short-term, expensive solution when better alternatives are available" according to 56 pct of the Climate Assembly members.

This contrasts with UK government support for the technologies. In March it pledged £800 million for CCS development, while in July it announced a £100 million investment in direct air carbon capture and storage (DACCS) R&D.
