Annual Report 2017
The Annual Report 2017 highlights the activities and accomplishments of the IEA Wind Technology Collaboration Programme.
Wind energy continued its strong forward momentum during the past term, with many countries setting records in cost reduction, deployment, and grid integration.
In 2017, new records were set for hourly, daily, and annual wind–generated electricity, as well as share of energy from wind. For example, Portugal covered 110% of national consumption with wind-generated electricity during three hours while China’s wind energy production increased 26% to 305.7 TWh. In Denmark, wind achieved a 43% share of the energy mix—the largest share of any IEA Wind TCP member countries.
