In 2014 global wind energy installations grew by 42% over 2013 to 51.2 gigawatts (GW) of electric power and cumulative installed capacity climbed to 372 GW. Market growth was largely driven by installations in three key countries: China, Germany, and the US. This market was estimated to be worth $143 billion in 2014 and is expected to more than double to $300 billion by 2022 when the offshore wind market is expected to overtake land installations.
