Global wind power installations are estimated to more than double in the next five years according to a new study, which also spotlights the record global wind growth in 2015, led by China and Germany.

The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) released its annual publication, the Global Wind Report: Annual Market Update this week. It shows that global wind power installations are expected to double over the next half-decade, with prices continuing to decrease as renewable energy becomes a priority for many countries, especially in the wake of the Paris Agreement’s 2020 emission reduction goals.
