The European Union has passed the milestone of 100GW of installed wind power capacity, according to the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA). 

It took the European wind energy sector some twenty years to get the first 10GW grid connected. It only needed 13 years to add an additional 90GW. Half of the total European wind power capacity has been installed over the past six years. Recent wind turbine installations contributing to the 100GW milestone include:
  • Anholt offshore wind farm, 400MW developed by DONG off the coast of Denmark;
  • Linowo, 48MW developed by EDF Energies Nouvelles Polska in Poland;
  • Ausumgaard, 12MW developed by a private landowner in Denmark (west Jutland);
  • Akoumia, 7.2MW developed by Greek power company PPCR on the island of Crete.
