Tender Watch

Welcome to Tender Watch, where Windpower Monthly and its reseach and data division, Windpower Intelligence, monitor auction results from around the world. 

This page will tell you the results, if known, of each tender, with price, total capacity, whether the auction was under or over subscribed -- which often has an effect on the price -- and, with more and more technology-neutral auctions taking place, how much of the auction was secured by wind projects. 

It will also list upcoming tenders to watch out for, and the latest tender news below the tables.

For more information on tenders in individual countries, click on the name of the country you are interested in if it displays in blue. We are constantly updating this information.

Check out Windpower Monthly's Global Regions page, with an interactive list of markets and their wind power capacities, for a closer look at your chosen region.
