This is the 14th annual report on the status of the global wind industry by the Global Wind Energy Council. It provides a comprehensive overview of the global industry at a specific moment in time; an industry now present in more than 90 countries, 30 of which have more than 1,000 MW installed, and 9 with more than 10,000.
The statistics represent information about the reserves, installed capacity, potential for generation, production, consumption, import, export and wholesale price of different energy commodities and Energy Indicators on Economic Dimension.
