Annual Report 2021
The Annual Report 2021 highlights the activities and accomplishments of the International Energy Agency Wind Technology Collaboration Programme (IEA Wind TCP)
The year 2021 saw newly added wind power capacity almost at the record year 2020 levels: global wind power installed capacity increased by 93 gigawatts (GW) to 837 GW, and offshore wind capacity made a new record reaching 57 GW total capacity by the end of the year . The wind power industry continued to show good resilience, only slightly affected by the global pandemic. The demand for wind and renewables is surging as renewable energy addresses environmental and energy crises. A leap in yearly deployment numbers is needed to reach new targets set for 2030 and beyond.
