The team behind Breeze has just released an interactive infographic showing the cumulative installed wind power capacity per country, continent and the world as a whole between 1997-2013. Building 300 GW of capacity in 17 years is an amazing accomplishment for an alternative* energy source and there is more to come! But don't take our word for it, try it out for yourself. *Alternative energy was the term energy experts used to dismiss renewable energy sources as experimental.
You read right, the Breeze team has whipped together a list of the 15 most effective ways to increase risk in Wind Resource Assessment. Give it a read to discover common pitfalls you can easily avoid by doing everything right from the start.
