Global Energy Monitor

The Global Wind Power Tracker (GWPT) is a worldwide dataset of utility-scale, on and offshore 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, pre-construction, 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 most recent release of this data was in June 2024.
