Additional facts about 2014:

Renewable energy represented 79,1% of all new power capacity in 2014, while in a continuing trend fuel oil, coal and nuclear capacity saw negative growth due to decommissioning.

• Wind energy represented 43,7% of all new EU power capacity installed last year.

In EU the investments into wind energy were between EUR 13,1 billion and EUR 18,7 billion. In Estonia the total investments into wind farms exceeded 122 million euros in 2013.

• The wind power capacity installed by the end of 2014 would, in a normal wind year, produce 257 TWh of electricity, enough to cover 10,2% of the EU’s electricity consumption.

• The spread of wind energy across Europe is shown by the fact that Denmark, Germany and Spain represented 33% of annual wind power installations in the EU in 2012, down from 85% in 2000.
