Wind energy projections for avoided fossil fuel imports in Europe 2030, by scenario

This statistics illustrates wind energy industry projections for avoided fossil fuel imports into Europe in 2030, by scenario. In the high scenario, which assumes the achievement of a 35 percent EU renewable energy target is met, almost 17 billion euros of fossil fuel imports would be avoided. This is 26 percent more than imports avoided in the central scenario.

Supplementary notes

*According to the source, In the Low Scenario, there would be 256.4 GW of wind capacity in 2030, 207 GW onshore and 49 GW offshore, producing 21.6% of the EU’s power demand in 2030. That is 20% less capacity than in the Central Scenario

** Central Scenario assumes that the EU meets its 27% renewable energy target in 2030 through the adoption of the Clean Energy Package proposals presented by the European Commission in November 2016

***High Scenario, which assumes favourable market and policy conditions including the achievement of a 35% EU renewable energy target, 397 GW of wind energy capacity would be installed in the EU by 2030, 298.5 GW onshore and 99 GW offshore. This would be 23% more capacity than in the Central Scenario and two and a half times more capacity than currently installed in the EU.
