2015 has been a good year for the wind industry. More than 53 GW have been installed and the year is ending on a high note, with the “historic climate deal” concluded in Paris, says Steve Sawyer, Secretary General of the Global Wind Energy Council (link is external).

“2015 has been a very good year for the wind industry, and for GWEC. I projected about 53 GW of installations globally back in March, and it looks like that will be exceeded, perhaps by a significant margin. China continues to astonish with installations in 2015 expected to top 25 GW; and a longer term deal on the PTC in the U.S., although not yet done, seems like a real possibility.
