Global Wind Industry Grows 44% In 2014
Global Wind Industry Grows 44 In 2014

February 10th, 2015 by Joshua S Hill
New figures released by the Global Wind Energy Council show that the global wind industry grew by 44% in 2014, installing over 51 GW and, according to the Global Wind Energy Council, acting as a “solid sign of the recovery of the industry after a rough patch in the past few years.”

According to the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), 51,4777 GW of new wind energy capacity was installed in 2014, pushing the cumulative total worldwide up to 369,553 GW by the end of the year.

Unsurprisingly, therefore, those involved in the wind industry are excited about the possibility of renewed growth.

“Wind power is the most competitive way of adding new power generation capacity to the grid in a rapidly increasing number of markets around the world, even when competing against heavily subsidized incumbents,” said Steve Sawyer, GWEC Secretary General.

“Wind is a rapidly maturing technology, with proven reliability and competitiveness. Not only the low prices but also the cost-stability of wind power makes it a very attractive option for utilities, independent power producers and companies who are looking for a hedge against the wildly fluctuating prices of fossil fuels.”


Growing!!! Very much alive and well. Only a idiot would oppose wind and solar!

Taxpayer subsidies will pay for lots of stupid ideas.
And AGW idiocy helps.

Coal, oil and natural gas were also subsidized and we pour a shit load of r&d into them. There's parts of this world where solar and wind doesn't even need them to beat coals ass! This is growing by the year!


China is installing a shit load of it!!! If it was so uncompetitive and evil. Why?

The government collects taxes from fossil fuels, they don't subsidize them.

Massive government stupidity is massive.
