The ten largest wind farms Windpower Intelligence has identified as coming fully online in July all have a capacity of 100MW or more.
Global capacity reached 582.2GW by the end of July, according to Windpower Intelligence, the research and data division of Windpower Monthly — an increase of about 4.5GW since the start of the month.
By comparison, the ten biggest projects in June had a combined capacity of just over 1GW — or 21% of the 4.7GW total commissioned that month.
Only one of the top ten wind farms — the 588MW Beatrice off the coast of Scotland — was an offshore project.
The top ten also includes Serbia’s largest wind farm: New Energy Solutions’ 104.5MW Blacksmith project in Vojvodina.
Genneia’s 113MW Pomona project in Río Negro, Argentina’s second largest wind farm, was also completed.
Windpower Intelligence forecasts 63.4GW of new additions worldwide in 2019, bringing the global cumulative capacity to 626.7GW.
