Windpower Monthly

Global wind-power capacity has increased from January to mid-June by just under 19GW, or around 5%, to 387GW.

Projections for the whole year — from the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and from Make Consulting — both suggest around 55GW will be installed. That is around 10% more than the capacity installed in 2014, and reflects good progress in a number of markets around the world, rather than any spectacular developments in a particular market.
