Carbon Brief

China now dominates the global wind energy market, building half the capacity added last year and hosting a third of the cumulative world total.

Carbon Brief has mapped data from the Global Wind Energy Council’s annual status report to illustrate how the wind energy market is changing.

There are a few stand-out features in the map and the underlying data. For instance, China installed more wind capacity in 2015 alone than the UK, Denmark and France combined have ever built.
