According to energy analyst firm Wood Mackenzie, 2018 saw 50.2 GW in new wind capacity installed on a global scale. Unlike trade association Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), WoodMac noted a slight growth relative to the preceding year – but this is far less than the forecast for the coming decade. 723 GW in new installations are expected for the period 2019-'28, which is more the twice current global capacity, assesses WoodMac in its latest ten-year prognosis.
The analyst firm thereby takes a more positive outlook compared to its December prognosis for 2018-'27, which estimated an expansion of 680 GW during the period.
