IEA launches technology roadmap on wind energy

30 November 2009

The IEA Technology Roadmap on Wind Energy, the third in a series that focuses on deployment of promising low-carbon energy technologies, captures the tasks that must be addressed along the complete wind energy supply chain, from efficient energy extraction on land and offshore to reliable and cost-effective delivery to consumers.

The roadmap looks towards 2050, when 12% of global electricity needs could be met by the wind. This roadmap will be available at the IEA stand at the UN climate talks in Copenhagen.
