Wind energy barometer 2019

379.3 TWh The estimated electricity production from wind power in the EU in 2018
Data released by the GWEC shows that newly-installed capacity across the globe slipped slightly (by 3.6%) in 2018 with 51.3 GW compared to 53.2 GW in 2017. This additional capacity takes total wind turbine capacity to 591 GW at the end of 2018, including 23 GW of offshore capacity. The most recent drop in the global installation figure – the third in succession – can be put down to significant contraction in the European and Indian markets that was not entirely offset by the return to growth of the Chinese and United States markets.
