Windicator 2016

Windpower Monthly's regularly updated guide to all the markets with wind power, showing recent and cumulative installations according to region, and subdivided into country and North American states and regions with more than 100MW operating and grid connected.

And to indicate the market potential in the near-term, we include our unique Feelgood Factor rating, for countries and regions with more than 3GW installed wind. This is scored out of five, and is based on the following factors:
political support; investor confidence; structural readiness; and current pipeline.

The final rating is an amalgam of all these factors. Further details on key markets are published in the annual Market Status report. 

Select a global region on the right to see a country-by-country breakdown of the figures, or select the Global tab to compare different markets. 


Feelgood Factor ratings are based on political support, investor confidence, structural preparedness, and number of projects in the current pipeline.

As well as Windpower Monthly international correspondents, and data from Windpower Intelligence — the research and data division of Windpower Monthly — it was compiled with contributions from law firms in each country, arranged by Dentons (with offices in more than 50 countries and a strong focus on energy).
