Wind power is about to get a whole lot cheaper
Wind energyis soaring around the world, thanks to technology advances and energy policies that have reduced its cost. And things are only going to get better — with prices dropping substantially by mid-century, according to a survey of 163 of the world’s leading wind energy experts. The results, published in the journal Nature Energy,suggest that the cost of electricity from wind could drop by 24–30 percent by 2030 relative to 2014 prices, and by 35–41 percent by 2050. The key driver of...
The Future Cost of Wind Power
Chapter 1 The economics of wind power Wind power is capital intensive with most of the investment required upfront. The largest capital cost component is the turbine itself which can account for between 40% and 80% of the total capital cost of an onshore wind installation. Costs offshore are higher because of the more expensive operating environment and the greater difficulty establishing a foundation so the proportion of capital cost taken by the turbine is generally lower than onshore. Turbine cost fell from...
Wind in power 2014 European Statistics
Wind power capacity installations During 2014, 12,819.6 MW of wind power was installed across Europe, of which 11,791.4 MW was in the European Union. Of the capacity installed in the EU, 10,308.1 MW was onshore and 1,483.3 MW offshore. In 2014, the annual onshore market increased in the EU by 5.3%, and offshore installations decreased by 5.3% compared to 2013. Overall, EU wind energy annual installations increased by 3.8% compared to 2013 installations. Investment in EU wind farms was between €13.1bn and...

Europe`s onshore and offshore wind energy potential
The exploitation of renewable energy sources can help the European Union meet many of its environmental and energy policy goals, including its obligation to reduce greenhouse gases under the Kyoto Protocol (EC, 2002a) and the aim of securing its energy supply (EC, 2002b; EC, 2005). As early as 1997, the European Union set an ambitious 2010 indicative target of 12 % for the contribution of renewable energy sources to EU-15 gross inland energy consumption (EC, 1997). In 2001, the EU adopted the Directive on the...
