A new report ranks the UK second top country in the wind sector, losing out to China. The UK was rated above the USA, Germany, India, Italy and France.

Meanwhile, Germany received a better rating because their financial community put 550m euros into an offshore wind project, showing strong future potential for future projects.

The Ernst & Young research takes into account onshore and offshore wind, as well as near-term wind and a wind index over February.

The top 5 are as follows:
