The Global Wind Energy Council is the international trade association for the wind power industry.
Our mission is to ensure that wind power establishes itself as the answer to today’s energy challenges, providing substantial environmental and economic benefits.
- Our mandate from our members is to communicate the benefits of wind power – to national governments, policy makers and international institutions.
- We provide authoritative research and analysis on the wind power industry in more than 80 countries around the world.
- We work with governments to give them transparent information about the benefits and potential of wind power, enabling them to make informed decisions about national energy policies.
- We support collaboration between policy makers in different countries to help them share best practices and experiences in adding clean power to their energy mix.
