International Scenario

COVID-19 pandemic is having an impact on developments and on new installations of wind power projects worldwide. There are many delays in different phases of project implementation. The delays are mainly caused by interruptions of international supply chains, non-availability of the workforce due to hygienic rules, permission procedures which is taking longer time than usual.

Another new development is the concept of direct marketing and self-consumption of wind power is becoming more popular in many parts of the world. While feed-in tariffs are under pressure and auctions lead to problems amongst investors, such new forms of direct marketing and self consumption may become major drivers for growth in near future.

The new installation of Wind Project in 2020 will be similar or slightly lower than 2019, but growth may return again in 2021.
