Evolution of Wind Power Over the Years

The Wind Power Capacity Map

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. 

Drag the slider bar on the bottom to see the how wind power capacity has changed over time. The area of each circle on the map corresponds to its respective capacity. Hover with the cursor over any circle to see more details. Only countries with more than 50MW of wind power capacity installed as of the end of 2013 are presented on the map.
