The UK has blown its previous record of 13% set in 2013 by achieving 14% of total electricity being generated by wind power. New figures for countries throughout the world published by the Global Wind Energy Council and GreenMatch reveal a global annual market growth of 44% and, in the UK, significant contribution to the country’s energy needs.

Results of the study indicate that, globally, much of the increase is accounted for by China, although Latin America and Africa are showing robust growth while the European market will face a slight downturn.
