Technology Forecast for Wind Power to 2026
Authors: Eize de Vries, Sara Verbruggen
Published: September, 2016
Pages: 170 | Tables: 5 | Figures: 50

The most topical technology question facing the wind power industry today is: how much bigger will turbines become? Generally, bigger power ratings tend to be accompanied by larger rotors but configuration choices also depend upon wind class, which in turn calls for stronger gears and bearings, reinforced structural designs, larger foundations and so on.

Published: July, 2016
Pages: 126 | Tables: 6 | Figures: 60

While it has faced some turbulent times in recent years, the global solar PV industry has continued to rise up the ranks of competitive alternative power supply technologies. In 2014, 45GW of new solar PV plant was added globally to take cumulative installed capacity worldwide to just over 174GW, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA). In 2015, a further 57GW was installed, says Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF), with China and the US installing the most.

Onshore Wind Power Operations and Maintenance to 2018
Authors: Sara Verbruggen
Published: June, 2016
Pages: 126 | Tables: 4 | Figures: 29

O&M costs typically account for 20–25% of the total generation costs currently for both onshore and offshore wind. In comparison, they come in at about 15% for coal, 10% for gas and 5% for nuclear. Getting this cost factor down for wind power is the biggest driving force for the O&M industry. In this report, we look at how the industry is doing that, the economic impact, what the main challenges are, and who the main players in the industry are.

Pages: 96 | Tables: | Figures: 33

While wind power has long been seen as the most viable choice for cost-competitive large-scale renewable electricity generation across the globe, it was perhaps only a matter of time before the solar power industry muscled in on the act – moving from being a mainly rooftop installation industry to a fully fledged renewable power generation heavyweight. What this Competitive Landscape Analysis for Ground-mounted Solar PV report makes abundantly clear is that the era of Big Solar – supplying competitive, PV-generated electricity on a utility-scale – is firmly upon us. And, it is a worldwide phenomenon.

Emerging Markets for Wind Power to 2020
Authors: Giles Cross, WPM correspondents
Published: December, 2014
Pages: 41 | Tables: | Figures: 25

A clear trend has been developing for wind power: while growth in the more developed markets is slowing down, the technology continues to spread to a growing number of countries across the world. With forecasts for global installed capacity by 2030 ranging between 1,500GW and 2,000GW, it is essential that emerging markets become an important part of the world’s wind power capacity.

Political uncertainty and insufficiently clear policies have the potential to jeopardise the progress of wind power in several of these emerging markets but a desire to boost economic growth and a definite drive towards  renewables are set to deliver significant growth.
