The European Union was the second highest installer of new wind power last year, according to a report.

The ‘Clean Energy Trends’ research was conducted by Clean Edge, a company who analyses the energy industry around the globe. According to Clean Edge, the EU came in second place to China who had more than 40% of all global wind turbines.

The EU had nearly 10GW of wind power installations and was followed by the US (7GW), India (3GW) and Canada (1.3GW) in the global wind power leader table.

The report predicts the wind power industry will grow from $71.5 billion last year to $116.3 billion by the next decade.
