How much wind was in Europe’s electricity yesterday?

Europe is a global leader in wind energy. The infographic shows that wind energy powers millions of European households and businesses every day. Last year wind energy covered 10.4% of EU power demand. And on some days, it covered more than 100% of some Member State’s electricity demand.

Wind power is a reliable partner in almost every Member State. As a mainstream technology, wind power fully competes with conventional plants.
