Halfway through the year, 4,755 MW of onshore wind and 1,344 of offshore wind has been installed in the EU. With the 6.1 GW in total, the year looks on course to match up with last year, where 12.5 GW of wind power was connected to the grid. The price fall also seems to have reversed. Until now, EUR 8.3 billion in new shares has been invested, which gives an average price of EUR 1.36 million / MW against EUR 1.98 million in 2016.
The figures stem from interest organization WindEurope.
