The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) launched its market intelligence platform during a press conference at WindEurope 2019 in Bilbao. GWEC Market Intelligence provides a series of insights and data-based analysis on the development of the global wind industry and is now accessible online for GWEC members.
GWEC Market Intelligence derives its insights from its own comprehensive databases, local knowledge and input from leading industry experts. The market intelligence services are built on top of the existing GWEC reports and statistics, as well as reports and databases from FTI Intelligence, which have now been transferred to GWEC under a signed agreement. With this agreement, FTI Consulting granted GWEC the Intellectual Property Rights for the consultancy’s Global Wind Market Update, Global Wind Supply Chain Update, Offshore Wind Report and Emerging Market Reports, as well as all the associated databases.
Ben Backwell, CEO at GWEC, said: “I am pleased to announce the launch of GWEC Market Intelligence services to the global wind industry. Our market intelligence team consists of its very own wind energy experts who collaborate with our regional and country members as well as our corporate members to provide high-level and reliable data. Bringing the high-quality databases and reports from FTI Consulting’s Clean Energy Intelligence unit into GWEC’s own intelligence is an important achievement for the association and ensures that our market intelligence services will not only bring extra value to our GWEC members, but can also support the growth of the global wind industry and acceleration of the energy transition.”
Karin Ohlenforst, Director of Market Intelligence, commented: “GWEC Market Intelligence has been created to better serve GWEC’s members and the industry. The platform is our main tool to share our insights and update our members instantly as new data and trends emerge throughout the year. The scope and focus of this platform will closely follow industry priorities to open up new business opportunities and emerging markets for our members. I am looking forward to further developing the platform, as well as other GWEC Market Intelligence services, while maintaining a strong baseline of databases and insights that the industry can rely on.”
The GWEC Market Intelligence platform includes: data for wind energy statistics, market outlooks, country profiles and policy updates; deep-dives into specific topics such as offshore wind, wind auctions, turbine technology trends, product segments, component assessment; as well as a series of exclusive databases including global offshore wind project list, auction results, wind project asset owners and operators, and O&M services providers.
