Wind energy in Europe in 2019
Europe installed 15.4 GW of new wind power capacity in 2019. This is 27% higher than 2018 but 10% less than the record in 2017.
Europe now has 205 GW of wind energy capacity. And wind accounted for 15% of the electricity the EU-28 consumed in 2019.
Three quarters of the new wind installations last year were onshore. Spain installed the most with 2.2 GW of new onshore wind farms. New installations and investments were down sharply in Germany.
