    World Wind Beat Global Nuke Plants In 2015

    Global wind power capacity tops nuclear energy for first time

    February 20, 2016 (Japan Times)

    “The capacity of wind power generation worldwide reached 432.42 gigawatts (GW) at the end of 2015, up 17 percent from a year earlier and surpassing nuclear energy for the first time…The generation capacity of wind farms newly built in 2015 was a record 63.01 GW, corresponding to about 60 nuclear reactors, according to the Global Wind Energy Council…The global nuclear power generation capacity was 382.55 GW as of Jan. 1, 2016…Both wind power and nuclear energy are being touted as alternatives to fossil fuel power as they produce fewer greenhouse gases…Wind energy has captured renewed attention as technological innovation has considerably lowered its generation costs while nuclear power continues to suffer a backlash following the 2011 Fukushima meltdowns…China led all other countries in wind energy generation capacity with 145.10 GW. Beijing is promoting wind power to shift from coal and other fossil fuels to combat air pollution and global warming…Coming in second behind China is the United States with 74.47 GW, followed by Germany with 44.95 GW, then India with 25.09 GW and then Spain with 23.03 GW. Japan produced 3.04 GW.” click here for more
