More than 54 GW of wind energy was installed across the global market in 2016, according to a new report from the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), which says the market now comprises more than 90 countries, including nine with more than 10 GW installed and 29 over the 1 GW mark.

In addition, cumulative capacity grew by 12.6% to reach a total of 486.8 GW, says GWEC.

“Wind power is now successfully competing with heavily subsidized incumbents across the globe, building new industries, creating hundreds of thousands of jobs and leading the way towards a clean energy future,” comments Steve Sawyer, GWEC secretary-general.
