Global Wind Energy Outlook 2014


The Global Wind Energy Council and Greenpeace International are pleased to present this fifth edition of the Global Wind Energy Outlook for 2014, the latest product of a collaboration that goes back to 1999. A lot has changed since then.

Wind power has now firmly established itself as a mainstream option for new electrical generation. The most remarkable recent development is that in an increasing number of markets, wind power is the least cost option when adding new generation capacity to the grid, and prices continue to fall. There are now commercial wind power installations in more than 90 countries with total installed capacity of 318 GW at the end of 2013, providing about 3% of global electricity supply last year.
