Wind energy barometer 2018

353,5 TWh : estimated electricity production from wind power in the EU in 2017
The global wind energy market contracted for the second year in succession. According to EurObserv’ER, the additional capacity, less decommissioned capacity, should be about 51 GW in 2017, compared to 55.5 GW in 2016. Restrained Chinese market development is the main reason for this downturn. The European Union market witnessed a flurry of activity before the new European Commission regulatory framework came into force. Installed global wind energy capacity passed the half-million MW mark in 2017, i.e. 539 256 MW.
