The Global Wind Power Tracker (GWPT) is a worldwide dataset of utility-scale wind facilities. It includes wind farm phases with capacities of 10 megawatts (MW) or more. A wind project phase is generally defined as a group of one or more wind turbines that are installed under one permit, one power purchase agreement, and typically come online at the same time. The GWPT catalogs every wind farm phase at this capacity threshold of any status, including operating, announced, under development, under construction, shelved, cancelled, mothballed, or retired. Each wind farm included in the tracker is linked to a wiki page on the GEM wiki.
The Global Wind Power Tracker provides information on wind farm phases 10 MW and above.
The tracker organizes information in both a map and table format. Projects can be filtered in the following ways:
The tracker was designed and produced by Global Energy Monitor, a network of researchers seeking to develop collaborative informational resources on fossil fuel impacts and alternatives. To the extent possible, the information in the tracker has been verified by activists and researchers familiar with particular countries.
