Global wind capacity grew 12.5% to 318,137MW in 2013, according to the Global Wind Energy Council.

Despite notching an increase of almost 200,000MW in the past five years, however, the Global Wind Statistics 2013 report reveals the annual market dropped by almost 10GW to 35,467MW.

This was “attributable to the precipitous drop in US installations due to the policy gap created by the US Congress in 2012”, GWEC said.
