Portugal’s wind power is expected to grow to around 7 GW by 2030, which is enough to cover almost 40% of the country’s electricity consumption, WindEurope’s press and comms manager has said.

“Portugal currently has 5.4 GW of installed wind capacity,” Andrew Canning told New Europe on 13 March. “All of that is onshore wind so far. But it’s enough to cover 24% of Portugal’s electricity consumption, the third highest in Europe after Denmark and Ireland. By 2030, we’re expecting this to grow to around 7 GW, enough to cover almost 40% of Portugal’s electricity consumption,” he added.

Portugal’s ambitious national energy and climate plan foresees raising renewables contribution to primary energy consumption from 31% in 2020 to 47% in 2030.
