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. In Texas, a further 21,000 megawatts of wind projects are under consideration, much of which could be accommodated by the “Competitive Renewable Energy Zones” high-voltage transmission projects scheduled for completion by the end of 2013. But it is Denmark that sets the bar for wind’s role in electricity production.
