The EU wind power market is undergoing a ‘slowdown’, according to statistics released today from a EU Commission-backed research group.

EurObserv’ER found global wind power capacity increased by 40.5 GW between 2010 and 2011, a slightly larger rise than the year before.

However they also found the amount of installed energy dropped between 2010 and 2011, according to the figures, which also show a 5.9% decrease in the EU wind turbines registered last year too.
