Hi, what are you looking for?

CleanTechnica
Yes, following up on my posts looking at total installed wind power capacit, wind power growth, and wind power capacity relative to GDP, here's one on wind power capacity related to population. I think this is very useful information for comparing which countries are true wind power leaders.

Installed Wind Power Capacity per Capita (Country Comparisons)

Yes, following up on my posts looking at total installed wind power capacit, wind power growth, and wind power capacity relative to GDP, here’s one on wind power capacity related to population. I think this is very useful information for comparing which countries are true wind power leaders.

10 countries with most installed wind power per capita -- totals are in MW per million people. (click to enlarge)

This is part of a living resource page on all things wind — installed capacity, future expectations, wind turbine technologies, etc. If you’re interested in helping out with this project, drop a comment below or email cleantechnica@importantmedia.org.

Yes, following up on my posts looking at total installed wind power capacity, wind power growth, and wind power capacity relative to GDP, here’s one on wind power capacity related to population. I think this is very useful information for comparing which countries are true wind energy leaders.

Installed Wind Power Capacity per Capita (by Country)

Using country population data from the U.S. Census Bureau, below are the 45 countries with the most installed wind power capacity compared according to their per capita wind power capacity (numbers are in MW per million people).

Again, what stands out? The same thing as when comparing installed wind power capacity to GDP. While countries like Germany and Spain that are near the top in total wind power capacity still stay near the top, some more populated countries fall quite a bit (i.e. China, the US, India, France) while a number of smaller countries surge to the top (i.e. Denmark, Portugal, Ireland, Sweden, the Netherlands).

These figures and more can be viewed in spreadsheet form here.
