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.

When compared to the offshore wind performance reported in 2014, 2015 data shows an increase in the Total Recordable Injury Rate (TRIR) and Lost Time Injury Frequency (LTIF) for the UK sector, whereas performance in Europe remained largely unchanged. The TRIR and LTIF are established safety performance indicators included in each of the G9 reports.

G9 chairman and ScottishPower Renewables’ offshore managing director Jonathan Cole said: "These reports provide the industry with a valuable insight into safety performance.

"Performance can be assessed against other industrial sectors and against previous years.

"There was a total of 983 reported incidents last year."

"Although the TRIR and LTIF do not show the whole story, it is important to understand changes in these numbers and I will be working closely with my G9 colleagues and other industry stakeholders to ensure measures are put into place to instigate the necessary performance improvement."

G9 collects data from UK Round Three developers, including non-G9 members. These are separated into two reports, one providing information on the UK offshore windfarms of both G9 and non-G9 members, while the other covers G9-member European offshore windfarms.

As revealed in the incident data report for G9 members, there was a total of 983 reported incidents last year.

Last year, LTIF recorded in UK was 2.96 and TRIR was 7.95, while the LTIF and TRIR in the EU was 1.93 and 5.99, respectively.
