Germany boasted the largest cumulative capacity in Europe at the end of 2014, at 40.4 GW, with 6.1 GW added in 2014.  Spain ranked second with wind energy capacity of almost 23 GW and capacity of 55 MW installed in 2014.
Denmark was first by per capita wind energy capacity with 862 kW/1000 inhabitants. Bulgaria reported 95 kW/1000 inhabitants against an EU average of 258 kW/1000 inhabitants. According to data available to EurObserv’ER, wind farms in the EU produced a total of 247 terawatt hours (TWh) in 2014, up by 5.3% on an annual basis. Wind energy’s share of the EU electricity mix increased to 7.5% of electricity consumption, compared to 7.1% in 2013.
