2019 was the second-biggest year for wind energy capacity additions, GWEC says

Market-based mechanisms drove the growth, according to the report, with auctioned wind capacity in 2019 surpassing 40 GW worldwide. This accounts for two-thirds new capacity and doubles the auctioned capacity compared to 2018.

The majority of wind energy installations in 2019 were located in established markets, with the top 5 markets (China, US, UK, India and Spain) accounting for 70% of new capacity. In terms of total installed capacity, China, U.S., U.K., India and Spain account for 73% of the total 651 GW of wind power capacity worldwide.
