As always, finalised megawatt totals from around the world will be published in The Windicator in the April issue of Windpower Monthly. During the first weeks of last year, about 3 GW of further development turned up after the January issue deadline. Several of the totals in the table are best (low) estimates at this stage. The US is showing all signs of scoring a record 5 GW, double what it achieved in 2006 and more than any country has previously installed in a single year. Of the top ten, no less than six countries added more than 1000 MW in 2007, with China and Spain vying for second place behind the US. Beyond the US and China, the fastest growth markets are France and Italy.
