Summary:If China is to meet and exceed its Paris Climate Agreement goal by 2030, it’s going to need to find a way to increase its wind capacity. Researchers found that offshore wind could be a big part of the solution.
Under the Paris Climate Agreement, China committed to rely on renewable resources for 20 percent of its energy needs by 2030. Currently, the country is on track to double that commitment, aiming to hit 40 percent by the next decade. Wind power is critical to achieving that goal. Over the past 20 years, China’s wind power capacity has exploded from 0.3 gigawatts to 161 gigawatts.
But, in recent years, that growth has slowed and the hopes for China’s wind-powered future have dampened.

Wind energy could cover more than one third of global power needs in 2050 reducing global carbon emissions by a quarter, new IRENA report finds
Beijing, China, 21 October 2019 – Asia could grow its share of installed capacity for onshore wind from 230 Gigawatt (GW) in 2018 to over 2600 GW by 2050, a new report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) finds. By that time, the region would become a global leader in wind, accounting for more than 50 per cent of all onshore and over 60 per cent of all offshore wind capacity installed globally.
