Analyzing the Global Wind Energy Industry 2015
The global wind energy industry had a fantastic year in 2014 as annual wind installations cross the mark of 50 GW. There was a sharp increase in installations across the world as compared to 2013, as over 51 GW of new wind power capacity was brought on line. Furthermore, the wind energy sector also witnessed a significant increase in investments as USD 99.5 billion was invested in the sector in 2014. This was a rise of 11 percent as compared to 2013.
At the end of 2014, the total installed wind power capacity in the world stood at 369.6 GW. China remained the largest market for wind and installations all over Asia remained good and the region led the global markets in terms of installations. Europe remained in the second spot, followed by North America. China, India, japan and Australia were the leading countries in terms of installed capacity of wind power in Asia Pacific. The US, Canada and Mexico were the leaders in wind capacity in the North American region, and Brazil outperformed all other markets in the Latin American region.
Brazil, Canada, Mexico and the US are expected to perform strongly in the coming years as global wind capacity will be boosted further by new projects coming on line in Japan, Kenya, Pakistan, South Africa and Australia.
