New to the Wind Trends Bulletin is the Global Wind Performance Index, designed to provide a quick and easy way to track the influence of wind resource variations on wind industry performance.
The 2015 bulletin shows that some of the world’s key wind-producing areas, led by China, the USA, India, and southern Europe, experienced mildly to significantly below-normal winds in 2015. Southern India, the western United States, and southeastern China were particularly hard hit. Other wind-producing areas such as northern Europe and northeastern Brazil experienced above-normal winds. It was a notably strong year for the UK and Denmark.
