China’s wind energy hits record high in 2015

09 Feb 2016

China’s National Energy Administration (NEA) has announced that the country’s collective wind capacity reached a record high in 2015 with a jump of more than 60% when compared to the previous year.

According to the Chinese NEA, the country added 32.97 gigawatts of energy in 2015. This news is encouraging as China looks to boost the use of renewable energy whilst lowering air pollution and reducing carbon emissions.

Scientific American reports said that China accounted for more than 46 per cent of all wind power installed globally in 2015 which is four times as much as the U.S.
