Endri Lico, Wood Mackenzie – What is the future for wind turbine costs?
Published March 20, 2023

We spoke to Endri Lico, Senior Research Analyst in Global Wind Supply Chain and Technology, at Wood Mackenzie to learn about rising prices for offshore and onshore wind turbines. He sheds light on the outlook for wind turbine costs over the next two to three years.

He also told us about the impact of high debt service costs, re-shoring, long permitting timelines in Europe and a spike in global wind turbine demand which have also contributed to the high wind turbine costs seen in Europe.

He contributes to several of the consultancy group’s publications covering wind turbine technology trends, wind turbine supply chain trends, wind turbine OEMs’ market shares and global next-generation wind turbine models.

Prior to joining Wood Mackenzie, he was an SP&S Global Productivity Manager and Cost, as well as a Value Manager for wind turbine manufacturer Siemens Gamesa.

March 20, 2023

In this webinar on supply chain risk, we see how inflation is creating the “perfect storm” by pushing up sea freight and metal prices seen for components, while low auction prices and weak manufacturing capacity in Europe are finally taking their toll. As a result, there may be a potential opening for Chinese wind turbine manufacturers.
