After record levels last year, world wind power is set to break new records in 2013
APRIL 3, 2013
With total capacity exceeding 280,000 megawatts, wind farms generate carbon-free electricity in more than 80 countries, 24 of which have at least 1,000 megawatts. But in Carbon County, Wyoming, a project of up to 3,000 megawatts is under development. But it is Denmark that sets the bar for wind’s role in electricity production. The Danish Wind Industry Association reports that wind farms generated 30 percent of Denmark’s electricity in 2012, up from 28 percent in 2011.
