Top 20 Highest Wind Energy Producing Country from 1989 – 2018
All over the world, many countries are investing in ground wind and offshore turbines. A non-profit organization based in Germany representing the Wind Energy Association in more than 100 countries, the World Wind Energy Association, said that later on there would be a diversified larger wind energy market.

The World Wind Energy Association (WWEA) organization promotes Energy renewal, advises governments to make policies, and runs the development of the wind power industry. Countries in Latin America and Africa installed the first wind power farms ever owned. The larger and varied wind energy market also means increasing competition and better prices for consumers.
Based on Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) data, in 2017 the total installed capacity of PLTB worldwide reached 539.123 GW. While, the 20 largest countries wind power users of the world at 2018
The use of alternative energy sources is encouraged. Electricity that has been used to support daily activities is often obtained through the utilization of wind power, solar heat, geothermal, to the processing of green waste.
No exception in China. Amid the development of renewable energy they continue to work, on Thursday (5/1) then Reuters reported that the Chinese government is supplying fantastic funds of $361 billion to build renewable energy infrastructure with targets completed in the upcoming 2020.
Chinese records in the power production of renewable energy is indeed a mentereng. Xinhua reported, in 2015 China became the world’s largest photovoltaic power generator by building up the power capacity of 43 gigawatts. Photovoltaic itself is the application of solar panels to convert sunlight into electrical energy.
The National Commission on Development and Reform in China gave details regarding the estimated funding allocation of the billions-dollar renewable energy infrastructure. The solar sector will receive a fund of 1 billion yuan, 700 billion yuan for wind power, 500 billion yuan for hydroelectric power. The rest is for power plants from tidal sea and geothermal water.
The National Energy Administration explained in a blueprint document, this investment will create more than 13 million jobs in the range from 2016 to the fulfilment of the target in the year 2020.
China is seriously working to cultivate renewable energy to supply the electricity needs of its people. Renewable energy also called green energy is claimed to be more environmentally friendly because it does not use fossil fuels. This is in line with the wishes of the Chinese government who want restriction of fossil energy, as well as the trend of world energy market that continues to shift reduce fossil fuels.
Related to fossil energy, the country is being treated with acute air pollution problems. One of them is the existence of coal power plants that are in the category of fossil energy and not environmentally friendly because it leaves the combustion waste.
Even according to Chinese researcher Qiao Ma to The Guardian, pollution from factories and coal-fired power plants has claimed at least 366,000 Chinese population in 2013 ago.
This type of renewable energy with the use of sunburn does produce the most electricity production than any other kind of renewable energy. It is natural that the achievement of electricity production of 43 megawatt year 2015 equivalent to 22.5 percent of total photovoltaic electrical energy all over the world.
Fortune mentions, solar panels in China are mostly installed in the expanse of remote areas of land that are compiled into such a sun-catcher farm. China’s National Energy Administration once said, of a total of 28.05 gigawatts of electricity produced at the end of 2014 then, as many as 23.38 gigawatts are derived from the installation of solar panels on the land expanse.
NASA satellite surveillance also shows a picture of a large array of solar panels in the Dunhuang area, northwest of Gansu province. The vast range of solar panels is also reported to continue to increase since 2012 last year and certainly impact on increased photovoltaic electrical production.
Not only successful in the production of photovoltaic electricity, China is also able to produce power supply of the world’s largest wind power. The Global Wind Statistic Data in 2015 mentions, China is leading as the largest producer of wind power in the world with a capacity of 145,104 megawatt, followed by America with 74,471 megawatt, Germany with 44,947 megawatt, India with 25,088 megawatt, and Spain with 23,025 megawatt. Practically, this large production capacity of China accounted for 33.6 percent of total wind power production worldwide.
