Using “2012 GDP data from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) as well as the Global Wind Energy Council’s (GWEC’s) wind power capacity data,” Zachary Shahan compiled for Clean Technica a ranking of the ’Top Wind Power Countries in the World per GDP’ for “total installed wind power at the end of 2012.”
These are the top ten countries:
|Country||Total Wind Power MW per Billion GDP||Total Installed Capacity|
A separate ranking lists countries by newly installed wind power during the year 2012. Romania and Nicaragua top this list.
