GWEC annual report shows 52GW of new capacity added globally last year 

Global wind power capacity reached 539GW at the end of last year, with the 52GW added in 2017 close to the 54GW installed in 2016, according to a new report from the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC).

The GWEC paper – ‘Global Wind Report: Annual Market Update’ – said regulatory changes in Germany, India and the UK will mean 2018 will also see a similar level of growth to last year before ramping up in 2019.
