    WIND GETS BIG ON EU GRID

    The 2014 Joint Research Centre’s wind status report shows that wind energy provided Europe with 8% of its electricity in 2014.

    Joshua S. Hill, July 27, 2015 (Clean Technica)

    “…[T]he EU’s grid-connected cumulative wind capacity in 2014 reached 129 GW, accounting for 8% of European electricity demand [according to new data from the Joint Research Centre]. Such a figure equates to the equivalent of the combined annual consumption of Belgium, the Netherlands, Greece, and Ireland…This growth is expected to continue growing, and by 2020 account for 12% of European electricity…Denmark generated enough wind electricity in 2014 to cover 40% of its internal demand, while in Ireland, Portugal, and Spain, the share of wind reached between 19% and 25% of final consumption. Not as impressive, but still worthwhile mentioning, 15 other EU Member States generated 4% or more of their electricity from wind energy generation…[G]lobal cumulative connected capacity soared to 370 GW in 2014, with 2014’s 52.8 GW installed capacity representing an annual record, a 48% increase compared to 2013, and 17% compared to 2012…China is well ahead of the pack, with 23.2 GW of new installations and a market share of 44%...” click here for more
