The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) recently published its final update of 2012 global wind power installation numbers. As such, I am now able to update my “Top Wind Power Countries” lists. If you’ve been a CleanTechnica reader for awhile, you know that I’m all about looking at relative rankings (or creating them when they don’t yet exist). That simply tells us much more about who the true clean energy leaders are than looking at total installation numbers.
In the past, I have created rankings of the top wind power countries per capita, per GDP, and per TWh of electricity production to supplement GWEC’s rankings of the absolute leaders.
