The Germans installed 1,624 onshore wind turbines with a total capacity of 4,625 MW last year. That is more than a fourth higher than last year's level, and only 125 MW less than the record year 2014, where 4,750 MW in onshore wind was installed. Altogether, 46 GW of onshore wind has now been installed in Germany.
