New study of the Russian wind power market shows: Russia has made important progress, time to accelerate wind power deployment
However: Four years after the first comprehensive analysis of the Russian wind energy market was undertaken, interesting new developments have happened. With today a total installed wind power capacity of around 1 Gigawatt, Russia has appeared on the global wind power map, although the country is not yet amongst the big wind power nations. In particular the past year 2020, the year of COVID-19, brought an impressive 700 Megawatt of new installations.
After the results of the previous FES/WWEA study on wind energy a few years ago showed that Russia has an enormous wind power potential, this study now presents an in-depth and detailed analysis of the current wind sector and its strengths and weaknesses.
Lisa Gürth, deputy head of office of the FES Moscow office: "The study shows what great potential Russia has in the field of renewable energy, but also how much still needs to be done. We hope that this study will contribute ideas to a development path for a more just and climate-neutral world."
Stefan Gsänger, WWEA Secretary General: “Russia is about to re-enter the global wind power landscape, after several decades of absence. In light of international developments, the country should now accelerate harvesting its huge wind and other renewable potentials, for the benefits of its citizens and communities, and for the environment and the climate. With a clear national renewable energy strategy in place, Russia can soon become a global leader in renewable energy.”
The study will be available for download in Russian and English language:
The study is presented today, 16 March 2021, 17:00 h Central European time during the webinar:
