The global wind energy capacity showed record growth in 2019 for offshore wind farms. The Global Wind Energy Council found that wind capacity grew by 60.4 gigawatts, or 19%, compared to 2018. Growth was driven by a record year for offshore wind power, which grew 6.1GW, representing one tenth of the new wind farm facilities. The Council’s annual report found that the USA and China remain the world’s largest markets for onshore wind development.
