Installed Wind Power Capacity Up 21% Globally in 2011

Installed Wind Power Capacity Up 21% Globally in 2011

Market statistics released Tuesday by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) show that over 41,000 megawatts (or 41 gigawatts) of new wind power was installed globally in 2011, bringing the overall total of installed capacity around the world to more than 238,000 megawatts (238 gigawatts) by the end of 2011. This represents an increase of 21 percent with an increase in the size of the annual global market of just over six percent. Approximately 75 countries currently have commercial wind power installations, of which 22 have already passed the 1 gigawatt level. “Despite the state of the global economy, wind power continues to be the renewable generation technology of choice,” said Steve Sawyer, GWEC Secretary General. “2011 was a tough year, as will be 2012, but the long term fundamentals of the industry remain very sound. For the second year running, the majority of new in...
