Top 10 European Wind Energy Generation in February 2023 Thanks to the explosive results of distributed energy storage and the growth of photovoltaic power generation, the renewable energy structure in Europe will undergo changes in 2023: wind power generation will experience a relative decline.
According to data from the Electrend, in February 2023, the top 10 countries in Europe generated a total of 31.8 TWh (1 TWh=1000 GWh) of wind power. The top 10 countries accounted for 88.6% of Europe’s total wind energy generation in February, with seven countries experiencing a decline in wind energy generation compared to the same period last year.
Germany, ranked first, generated 12.1 TWh of wind energy in February, accounting for 33.7% of the wind energy generation in Europe that month, a year-on-year decrease of 41.3%.
Spain, with a wind energy generation capacity of 4.6 TWh, ranks second. Together with Finland and Portugal, they became the only three countries with year-on-year growth in electricity generation that month.
Spain and Portugal are adjacent to each other, with long and narrow coastlines, wind currents surrounding the country, and high intensity. Therefore, even if most countries in Europe experience a decline in wind power generation, these three countries can still generate wind energy at sea and have further room for development.
