    WORLD WIND NOW

    World Wind World Report 2012 launched; 100 Countries are using Wind Energy today - Iceland as 100th Wind Power Country

    16 May 2013 (World Wind Energy Association)

    “…The worldwide wind capacity reached 282’275 Megawatt, out of which 44’609 Megawatt were added in 2012, more than ever before…Wind power showed a growth rate of 19,2 %, the lowest rate in more than a decade…All wind turbines installed by the end of 2012 worldwide can provide 580 Terawatthours per annum, more than 3 % of the global electricity demand…The wind sector in 2012 had a turnover of 60 billion Euro/75 billion USD… Altogether, 100 countries and regions used wind power for electricity generation; Iceland has become the 100th country that is using wind power…China and USA both installed around 13 Gigawatt of new wind turbines…

    “…Asia accounted for the largest share of new installations (36,3 %), followed by North America (31,3 %) and Europe (27,5 %). Latin America stood for 3.9 % and Australia/Oceania for 0,8 %. Africa (0,2 %) is still a tiny wind market…Latin America and Eastern Europe continue to be the most dynamic world regions while Africa showed stagnation, with only Tunisia and Ethiopia installing new wind farms…”

    “…China continued to be the by far largest Asian market…[but added] significantly less than in the previous year…India was again the third largest market…adding 2,5 GW…[In third, Japan] still grew very slowly and installed less than newcomer Pakistan…The US market set a new record and became the world’s largest market for new wind turbines…The Canadian market slowed…Germany continued its role as the largest and most stable market in Europe with 31 GW, followed by Spain with 22,8 GW…Italy, France and the UK continued to be the medium-sized markets, with total capacity between 7,5 and 8,5 GW. Poland, Romania and Sweden became major markets…

    “…The share of offshore wind in the overall capacity increased to 1,9 %, after 1,5 % in 2011…Policy uncertainties in major markets represent a major barrier for wind penetration…WWEA expects a global capacity of more than 500’000 Megawatt by the year 2016. Around 1’000’000 Megawatt are possible by the year 2020…”
