The State of the Global Wind Energy Industry

Driven by policy uncertainty in the United States and the lingering effects of the 2008 financial crash in Europe, the wind power industry declined 20% year on year, in terms of new capacity installations, in 2013, compared to market growth of 18.6% in 2012.

It was the first time in 8 years that the industry has installed less in a given year than the year before.  Going forward, however, growth prospects in the industry remain strong.

Featuring research director Feng Zhao and senior research analyst Jesse Broehl, along with Michael Ernst, director of regulatory affairs at Tetra Tech, this webinar will provide an overview of the state of the wind power industry, including a review of key developments in 2013 plus forecasts for key global markets through 2018.  The webinar will also examine the underlying policy and market trends that are driving these forecasts.  The latest advances in wind turbine technology trends and the status of the global offshore wind market will also be covered, along with market share data for the major wind turbine manufacturers.
