Wind continues to blow faster in China and India than the rest of the world as a new report detailing the growth of wind energy across the globe in 2015 suggests that the days of West’s dominance in the industry are now over, thus diverting all attention to the two promising Asian markets.

Before delving deep into “why and how,” let’s take a look at the statistics of wind capacity additions in 2015, which was yet another stellar year for the industry’s growth. The story is pretty simple, according to the Global Wind Energy Council, which says that 2015 was an unprecedented year for the wind energy industry as annual installations crossed the 60 GW mark for the first time in history. The last record was set in 2014 when over 51.7 GW of new capacity was installed globally.
