The first half of 2017 saw Europe install 6.1GW of new wind energy capacity.

That’s according to new figures released by industry organisation WindEurope, which put the renewable power source on course for a successful year across the continent.

However, much of this investment and development was heavily concentrated in a relatively small number of countries.

A total of 4.8GW of onshore wind capacity was installed in the first half of 2017, with the majority being built in Germany (2.2GW), UK (1.2GW) and France (492MW).
