In this section, wind deployment scenarios for 2030 are addressed in the same way as for 2020.
For clarity, empirical results are presented fro EWEA's 2030 high scenario only, since this is the most optimistic assumption at present.
Before presenting the avoided external costs due to wind generation in EWEA's 2030 high scenario, annual wind generation of EWEA's three wind generation scenarios on EU Member State level in 2030 is shown in Figure 5.23.

Figures 5.24-5.25 present €69 billion per year (in total) of avoided external costs in the EU-27 Member States by wind generation in EWEA's high wind penetration scenario on an aggregated EU-27 level.
