Abstract: In 2015, the EU connected 12.8 GW of new wind energy capacity, or 44% of total power capacity installations, for a cumulative wind capacity of 141.6 GW at the end of the year. The total net installed power capacity (including wind energy) increased by 11 GW, reaching 908 GW. Since 2000, 30% of new generating capacity installed has been wind power [1]. In 2015, wind energy generated 279 TWh of electricity meeting over 9.3% of EU power demand [2]. The EU programmes Horizon 2020, FP7, and Eureka funded wind Research and Innovation (R&I) projects that started in 2015 with 91.9 million EUR (100 million USD). In addition, two demonstration projects totaling 1,182.9 million EUR (199 million USD) of public funding under the NER 300 programme reached final investment decision in 2015. NER 300 is a financing instrument managed jointly by the European Commission, European Investment Bank, and Member States.
