The EU’s total installed power capacity increased by 28.8 GW net to 931.6 GW, with wind power increasing by 11.4 GW and reaching a share of total installed generation capacity of 11.3%, up from 10.4% the previous year.The 105.7 GW of installed wind power capacity is 1.9 GW (1.7%) below the installed capacity outlined in the 27 National Renewable Energy Action Plans (NREAPs) of 107.6 GW. Onshore there are 100.7 GW of installed capacity instead of 101.7 GW foreseen by the NREAPs (-1%). Offshore there are 4,993 MW of installed capacity instead of 5,829 foreseen by the NREAPs (-14%). Since 2000, 27.6% of new capacity installed has been wind power, 51.2% renewables and 91.2% renewables and gas combined.The EU power sector continues its move away from fuel oil, coal and nuclear, with each technology continuing to decommission more than it installs.
