The market for European wind power capacity broke new records in 2006 

The market for European wind power capacity broke new records in 2006, according to the annual statistics issued by the European Wind Energy Association. 7,588 MW of wind power capacity, worth some 9 billion, was installed last year in the EU, an increase of 23% compared to 2005. The cumulative wind power capacity operating in the EU increased by 19% and now exceeds 48,000 MW. In an average wind year this will produce approximately 100 TWh of electricity, equal to 3.3% of total EU electricity consumption. For more details and information see:
