Global Wind Installed Capacity

2011 – 2021F (gigawatts)

Proof Point Findings

  • Wind Installed Capacity – Amount of electricity turbine can generate under optimal wind conditions
  • Continued Annual Installation Strong Growth – Projected to reach 75.3 GW wind turbine capacity by 2021, up from 40.6 GW by 2011, growing annually by 6.4%
  • Cumulative Capacity – Total capacity estimated to reach more than 800 GW by 2021 from just 238 GW in 2011, a 13.1% annual growth rate
  • Key Growth Drivers — Include positive outcome of international agreements on climate change and renewable energy development, dropping wind prices, and market stability backed by national policies in the US and elsewhere
