New Interactive Tool Shows “The Evolution Of Wind Power” Around The World

A new interactive web tool created between the Global Wind Energy Council and renewable energy software company Greenbyte allows users to witness The Evolution of Wind Power between 1981 and today.

A new interactive web tool created between the Global Wind Energy Council and renewable energy software company Greenbyte allows users to witness “The Evolution of Wind Power” between 1981 and today.

The Evolution of Wind Power was created based on data provided by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) tracing the evolution and growth of the world’s wind energy fleet, working right through to the most recent GWEC annual report published earlier this week. According to Greenbyte, “The interactive map reveals the cumulative installed capacity per country, continent and the world between 1981-2017.”

The map is a visual representation of the figures outlined in the Global Wind Energy Council’s annual statistics report, which showed China was still leading the way, installing 23 gigawatts in 2016, bringing their cumulative installed capacity up to over 168 GW. The United States and Germany followed, with strong performances from India, the Netherlands, and Turkey.
