Top 10 European Wind Energy Generation in March 2022
According to data from Chaodian Network, in March 2022, the top 10 countries in Europe generated a total of 34.5 TWh of wind power (1 TWh=1000 GWh), accounting for 84.4% of the total wind power generation in Europe that month.
Germany still leads Europe in wind power generation, generating 8.1 TWh in March, accounting for 19.8% of Europe’s wind Energy generation that month.
Following closely behind, Spain and the United Kingdom ranked second in the European wind power generation industry, with wind power generation of 6.3TWh and 6.2TWh, respectively, for the month.
The third tier is France and Sweden, with a small difference in wind power generation that month, at 3.3 TWh and 3.2 TWh, respectively.
The power generation of the other five countries (Italy, Portugal, Norway, Poland, Denmark) is between 1-2TWh, with no significant difference.
As early as the 1990s, the European Union proposed plans and goals to vigorously develop wind power, and now wind power has become the cheapest power generation model in Europe.
From the perspective of wind power installation types, Europe mainly relies on onshore wind power, accounting for over 80%. However, in recent years, on the one hand, offshore wind power has gradually been valued, and on the other hand, the aging and retirement of onshore wind power decades ago have led to a significantly higher installed speed of offshore wind power compared to onshore wind power.
