Make forecasts 40GW of new wind power in Middle East and Africa by 2026

Make's most recent wind power outlook for Middle East and Africa forecasts nearly 40GW of new wind power capacity to be added in the region from 2017 to 2026, with a compounded annual growth rate of 22%. The growth in wind is supported by tremendous wind resources as well as an increase in experience and best practices across the value chain, which will result in a gradual reduction in the LCOE of wind power (an average across the region of -15% from 2017 to 2022).
