It's no secret that renewable energy is a growing market. 54.6 GW was added to global wind capacity in 2016, a 13% cumulative growth rate. The Global Wind Energy Council believes that the total capacity will reach 800 GW by 2021 from 487 GW in 2016. This will create new power and energy jobs, with the wind energy market in the EU alone creating 520,000 positions by 2020, more than doubling the 2012 total.

90 countries across the world now have wind energy capacity, including 29 that have now passed 1,000 MW and 9 with more than 10,000 MW installed. Take a look at our infographic below to see where some of the most impressive wind farms are across the globe.
