Spain Proves Wind Power Works

Last year Spain reached a record level of wind power installations. Many people now cite Spain's use of wind power as proof that wind is a viable energy source. Corin Millais, CEO of the European Wind Energy Association says: "To dismiss wind energy as an expensive, niche green luxury, as many do, is to ignore what has happened in Spain, the world's number one wind market". Last year there was an additional 2,065 MW installed, a 33 percent increase on 2003, taking the total to 8,263 MW. Germany is still the leader overall, with about 16,000 MW of wind power installed. :: Renewable Energy Access
