"The global installed wind capacity in 2019 was 60.4GW, an increase of 19% over 2018 and the second best year in the history of wind power. 2. Currently, the cumulative installed capacity of global wind energy is over 651GW, an increase of 10% over 2018. 3. China and the us remain the world's largest onshore wind markets, accounting for more than 60% of new installations in 2019. 4. Offshore wind power is playing an increasingly important ROle in driving global wind power installation, with a record 6.1GW of installed capacity in 2019, accounting for 10% of new installations. 5. The report identifies two key tools for further accelerating wind energy growth: the focus to support the long-term sustainability of the wind and renewable energy industries shifts from leveling the cost of kilowatt hour (LCOE) to the energy markets being built; And the adoption of emerging technological solutions, such as hybrid technology and green hydrogen (production), opens up new opportunities for the industry. 6.2020 is expected to be a record year for wind power, with GWEC forecasting 76GW of new installations. However, the full impact of covid-19 on wind installations remains unknown. GWEC will revise its 2020-2024 forecast based on COVID 19's potential impact on the global economy and energy markets, and will release an updated market outlook in the second quarter of 2020.
