I’ve seen a couple of articles recently that make me think that wind power is going to increase even more rapidly in the next few years, so I just thought I’d write a short post to see whether you thought the same?
I’m still conducting my research, but here’s a summary of what I’ve learnt so far:
- Last year was a record year for wind installations, with the net installed capacity 169 GW – a figure that’s creeping closer and closer to gas installations
- 11.6% of the EU’s electricity demand is now taken care of by wind
- Costs are coming down considerably – last year it cost 60% less to invest in wind than it did in 2015
What are your thoughts? Is wind the future? And if so, how will that impact you?
