Hi green followers,
Wind power, the future? Or will solar power eventually become more reliable?
Here are some interesting figures about wind power per country (mostly wiki):
Wind power in megawatts per country, 2009:
1. USA - 35,159
2. Germany - 25,777
3. China - 25.104
4. Spain - 19.149
5. India - 10.925
USA on top, but remember, these are absolute figures. If we look per capita, the top 5 looks totally different, that would contain countries like Denmark and Portugal. USA would probably not even reach to the top 25 of countries with per capita wind energy.
Also there are huge differences in growth of wind power. China is currenltly the quickest grower and will probably be the no. 1 wind power generator in 2 or 3 years from now. USA grows a little slower and Germany is lacking behind (though investing a lot of money in solar energy, they are no. 1 in the world with that).
Keep you updated.
