Approximately 84% of the total worldwide wind power capacity (413 GW, 2016), and all of the world’s offshore wind capacity, currently resides in the 22 countries participating in the International Energy Agency Wind Technology Collaboration Programme (IEA Wind TCP). Illustrating wind energy’s significance in IEA Wind member countries, Portugal met 100% of its electricity needs in February and November of 2016 and Denmark met an average of 38% of its electrical needs with wind-generated electricity throughout that year.
