China is still leading the charge in the wind energy industry, outpacing by far the US, Germany, India and Spain.
Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) secretary-general Steve Sawyer, said the last two years in the global wind energy industry had seen substantial growth, after a flat period between 2009 and 2013.
He told the annual Windaba in Cape Town that there was spectacular growth of 22% in 2015, but this was expected to ease in 2016.
“Wind supplied more than half of global power generation in 2015 – more than any other technology,” said Sawyer.
