European Wind Energy Installations Outperform Gas And Coal In 2014

By Joshua S Hill The European Wind Energy Agency has released figures for 2014, showing that the European wind industry connected almost 12 GW to the grid, compared to coal and gas, which only managed to connect 3,305 MW and 2,338 MW respectively.

The news gets better as well, when you consider that the European coal and gas industries retired more capacity than they commissioned in 2014.
