The future of wind energy in Australia

Wind power is a rapidly growing global source of zero-carbon energy. It has already become a significant source of power in countries such as Germany, Spain, Ireland and Denmark.

An expert panel discussed the size of the wind industry, its current and future generation costs, and how countries are learning to integrate large amounts of wind power into the grid while maintaining reliable electricity supplies.

The panel also explored global wind market trends, the impact wind power has had on various OECD economies, and the social acceptance issues that dominate the wind energy debate.
