GWEC is a member-based organisation that represents the entire wind energy sector. The members of GWEC represent over 1,500 companies, organisations and institutions in more than 70 countries, including manufacturers, developers, component suppliers, research institutes, national wind and renewables associations, electricity providers, finance and insurance companies.

We work at the highest international political level to create a better policy environment for wind power. Our mission is to ensure that wind power establishes itself as the answer to today’s energy challenges, providing substantial environmental and economic benefits.


  1. Policy development: We represent the wind industry’s interests in international negotiations to ensure that win power takes its place as a major energy source (IEA, IRENA, UN, etc.)
  2. Global outreach: We work local partners to help open up new markets, helping to create the policy environment for wind power to thrive across the world.
  3. Information and education: We provide authoritative information, analysis and data about the status of the industry globally, along with our expectations for the future.
