Wind energy CEOs warn G20 leaders over climate targets

The heads of many of the world's biggest wind energy companies have told global leaders that efforts to meet global climate goals are "Condemned to fail" if they do not urgently step up turbine installation. Wind energy is expected by groups including the International Energy Agency and the International Renewables Energy Agency to form the backbone of global electricity generation by 2050. This will be "Unachievable without decisive and urgent policy change across the G20 countries", the chief executives warn in the letter, which was co-ordinated by the Global Wind Energy Council. They are urging governments to set more ambitious national wind energy targets as well as solve problems that prevent the delivery of projects such as "Inadequate" permitting and planning regimes as well as insufficient investment in electricity grids. The letter has been timed ahead of G20 ministerial sessions on the environment, climate and energy at the end of the week in Naples.
