In comparison, wind energy capacity in Europe increased 3.8% year on year from 2013, with cumulative installations now standing at 128.8 GW in the EU…Renewable power plants accounted for 79.1% of new installations during 2014; 21.3GW of a total 26.9GW. Today, grid-connected wind power is enough to cover 10% of the EU's electricity consumption, up from 8% the year before…Germany and the United Kingdom accounted for 59.5% of total EU wind energy installations in 2014, installing 5,279MW and 1,736MW respectively…” click here for more
