Offshore wind energy investment quadruples despite Covid-19 slump


Global offshore wind investment more than quadrupled in the first half of the year even as the coronavirus pandemic triggered an unprecedented economic shock.

A report has found that investors gave the greenlight to 28 new offshore windfarms worth a total of $35bn (£28bn) this year, four times more than in the first half of 2019 and well above the total for last year as a whole.

Wind energy in Argentina reaches 2,099 MW


Argentina continues to add renewable developments despite the complex local macroeconomic context. Wind energy technology with wind turbines is the one that makes the greatest contribution to the energy matrix.

The complex macroeconomic scenario in which the country is submerged on the brink of default and the restrictions imposed to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus were not enough to slow the advance of renewable energy in the country.

Three Quarters Of The World’s New Energy Projects Were Renewable in 2019

Renewable energy made up 72% of all new energy generation projects last year, with solar and wind power making up 90% of that capacity.

According to a new report from IRENA, the International Renewable Energy Agency, 176 gigawatts (GW) of renewable energy capacity were added globally last year—a growth of 7.4%—with a notable 54% of that new capacity being added in Asia.
