    Europe Dominates World Wind Power Share, But Trails in Capacity

    Matt Petronzio, August 24, 2014 (Mashble)

    “…Most of the leading countries with the highest percentages of wind energy in 2013 were located in Europe…Denmark tops the list, generating one-third (33.8%) of its electricity from wind power…Portugal's wind farms generated nearly 25% of the country's electricity in 2013, while Spain generated nearly 21%, followed by Ireland (17.3%), Germany (7.9%) and the UK (7.7%). Outside of Europe, China and the U.S. have the highest wind-power share — the amount of electricity that wind power generates, compared to the country's overall electricity production — at 6% and 4.1%, respectively…[On the other hand,] China may only generate 6% of its electricity with wind, but its wind facilities are designed to produce 91,400 megawatt-hours of energy. That's compared to Denmark's 4,800 megawatt-hours…While wind energy has many benefits, certain barriers continue to inhibit advances in its production around the world, including regulatory hurdles, financial challenges, political opposition and "not in my backyard" aesthetic concerns…” click here for more
