The global wind industry installed a record 117GW of new capacity in 2023, making it the best year ever for new wind energy. Despite a turbulent political and macroeconomic environment, the report finds that the wind industry is entering a new era of accelerated growth driven by increased political ambition, manifested in the historic COP28 adoption of a target to triple renewable energy by 2030.

The report highlights increasing momentum on the growth of wind energy worldwide:

Total installations of 117GW in 2023 represents a 50% year-on-year increase from 2022

2023 was a year of continued global growth - 54 countries representing all continents built new wind power

GWEC has revised its 2024-2030 growth forecast (1210GW) upwards by 10%, in response to the establishment of national industrial policies in major economies, gathering momentum in offshore wind and promising growth among emerging markets and developing economies

The report also explores the hurdles facing the sector - from reforming planning, streamlining finance, building out grids and transforming markets so they work to accelerate the energy transition. GWEC’s team of experts have taken a deep-dive into all these topics in our biggest report ever.

Your sincerely,
