A recent study by the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) indicates that the EU will triple its wind energy output by 2020. In 2010 the EU wind industry generated approximately 182 terawatt hours (TWh) of electricity or 5.3% of the energy demand, in 2010 it is expected to increase to 581 TWh and 15.7%. Currently there are roughly 70,000 turbines in operation throughout the EU, it is expected that an additional 60,000 will be operational by 2020, with more advanced turbine technology allowing greater efficiencies and power output. Annual investment in the industry is expected to rise from € 12.7 billion to € 18 billion by 2020.
