The Europe Wind Energy Association is reporting that the amount of new power from wind turbines this year will be about the same as new power from natural gas plants, with wind possibly ranking as number one.
Wind power has been steadily catching up with natural gas, the current leader in power generating capacity in Europe. New wind power exceeded new gas power in 2008 and 2009, and the total installed capacity in the EU is now 85 GW. Comparatively, natural gas generated 119 GW in 2007 (the latest figures available).
Also notable is the ramping up of wind power in new EU member states like Bulgaria and Romania.
