New wind power installations totalled more than 52GW in 2017, according to the Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century (REN21). But this total was only just over half of the 98GW of solar PV installed last year and less than new additions in 2015 (64GW) and 2016 (55GW), REN21’s analysis showed. The contraction in wind power installations was mostly due to less capacity being added in China (19.7GW, down from), REN21 stated in its global status report.
