Across Europe, wind power installations increased by 10.5% over the last year, as our map shows. Yet, wind-power generation, noted below, is estimated to have increased by 14.6% on 2012. Be it caused by better grid mangement, smarter turbines, more wind, higher capacity factors, this is good news for the sector.
Individually, Denmark produced the greatest proportion of its electricity from wind, at 33%. The largest quantity came from Spain - 54TWh, or 18% of total generation. As recently reported, this made wind the biggest electricity producer in Spain.
Germany (49TWh), despite a higher installed wind power capacity, produced slightly less, at 49TWh.
