Last Sunday, German wind energy output reached, 39,190 MegaWatts which is equivalent to the energy output of 40 nuclear reactors. This energy is enough to meet the power needs of more than half of Germany. At the moment, Germany is eyeing to increase Wind Energy installations by 9% by the end of 2017.

Wind Energy supplies 10% of Europe’s total energy requirement.
