The EU has cemented its title as the world champion of wind power by passing the milestone of 100 gigawatts of generating capacity installed.
The turbines bestriding the continent’s plains and seas can now pump out as much electricity as 39 nuclear power plants – or enough for 57m households.
The new record, announced by the European Wind Energy Association trade body on the 26 September 2012, underlined how quickly wind power has grown in the EU, despite the eurozone crisis and concern about the cost of wind subsidies and turbine-blighted views.
