Top Wind Power Countries Per Capita

Top Wind Power Countries Per Capita

The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) does a great job of summarizing wind power growth and cumulative installed wind power capacity in countries around the world year after year. And we wrote a summary piece on GWEC’s most recent annual report when it came out in February. However, GWEC’s report always looks at these numbers on an absolute basis. While that is very relevant to many discussions, I often want to know what the top countries are per capita , per GDP , and per GWh or TWh of electricity production . So, I’ve gone and figured those things out (not difficult, of course, just requires setting a little time aside from the fast-paced, jam-packed news cycle I’m usually on in order to do so).
