EWEA: Wind to Power Quarter of Europe’s Electricity Demand by 2030

Wind power can meet a quarter of Europe’s electricity demand by 2030 if Member States deliver on climate and energy pledges, according to the latest forecasts by the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA). Over the next 15 years, EWEA expects wind power installations in Europe to reach 320GW of capacity, which could serve 24.4% of electricity demand across the region.

Today, Europe’s 128.8GW can meet over 10% of European power consumption in a normal wind year.
