Wind power-plants in Europe

Wind in power: 2014 European statistics


  • There are now 128.8 GW of installed wind energy capacity in the EU: 120.6 GW onshore and over 8 GW offshore.
  • 11,791.4 MW of wind power capacity was installed in the EU-28 during 2014, a increase of 3.8% compared to 2013 installations.
  • The EU power sector continues its move away from fuel oil and coal with each technology continuing to decommission more than it installs.
  • The wind power capacity installed by the end of 2014 would, in a normal wind year, produce 284 TWh of electricity, enough to cover 10.2% of the EU's electricity consumption.
