China Leads World in New Wind Power Installations for 2011

China Leads World in New Wind Power Installations for 2011

Land Rover Our Planet /CC BY-ND 2.0 India may have led the world in renewable energy growth last year (its solar power installations grew at incredible 700%), but when it comes to new wind power China far and away leads the world. China's wind power push nearly tripled that of the United States, which installed the second-greatest amount. New figures from the Global Wind Energy Council show that China installed 18 gigawatts of new wind power in 2011, bringing its national total to 62.73 GW, a world-leading 26.4% of all our wind power. The US installed 6.81 GW of new wind power in 2011, for a total of 46.92 GW and 19.7% of the global market. India came in third for new installations, with 3.019 GW, but ranks fifth for total capacity (16.084 GW, 6.7% of the world's wind power). Rounding out the top ten nations for new wind power installations in 2011: Germany (2.1 GW), UK (1...
