Wind Power Market seeing increased risk and disruption

The wind power market has grown at a CAGR of 14% between 2010 and 2021 to reach 830 GW by end of 2021. This has largely been possible due to favourable government policies that have provided incentives to the sector. This has led to an increase in the share of wind in the capacity mix, going from a miniscule 4% in 2010 to 10% in 2021. This is further set to rise to 15% by 2030. However, the recent commodity price increase has hit the sector hard, increasing risks for wind turbine manufacturers and project developers, and the Russia-Ukraine crisis has caused further price increase and supply chain disruption. In light of this, GlobalData has identified which countries are expected to add the majority of wind power capacity out to 2030.

SafetyOn is a non-profit, member led collaboration of industry leaders, health and safety experts and regulators in the wind industry. It will collect data on health and safety across the sector and work towards mitigating emerging risks through co-operation and shared information.

The group will be led by professional membership body the Energy Institute (EI), who is the project manager and secretariat of the group. The 19 founding members of SafetyOn include companies such as EDF Renewables, Siemens Gamea Renewable Energy and SSE Renewables.

EI CEO Louise Kingham said: “With thousands of people employed in the UK’s onshore wind industry, SafetyOn is playing a part in making sure they return home safe.

“As a global partner to the energy industry, the EI is pleased to support the work of SafetyOn in ensuring inclusivity across the whole sector using its tested collaboration model, working in partnership with the HSE and other regulators to uphold safe and responsible operations.”

Founding member company Vestas Celtic Wind Technology’s service director Keith Wallace added: “I am in no doubt that the formation of SafetyOn will be instrumental in the positive progress of safety performance for onshore wind in the UK.

“Through SafetyOn we can drive collaboration and accountability as a team to leverage this experience for the wider benefit. We must take the lead by solving common problems together, setting high standards and deliver on our commitments.”

SafetyOn was launched the Renewable Wind & Emergency Response conference in Birmingham.
