Compare the effectivenesss of wind turbines based on the capacity factor of the project.

Use Capacity Factor Comparison to see how wind turbines compare in the real world over many years, month by month. All wind turbines are clearly not the same.

Renewables Map is possibly the only resource that links wind turbine make and model directly to capacity factor for all projects over 500kW.

How much of the UK’s energy is renewable?
With the UK aiming to reach net zero by 2050, a crucial part of the strategy is to transition to an electricity system with 100% zero-carbon generation and much of this is expected to come from renewable energy.
How many more wind turbines will the UK build?
The government says it wants to generate enough wind energy to be able to power every home in the UK by 2030.
Wind is main source of UK electricity for first time
Wind turbines have generated more electricity than gas for the first time in the UK. In the first three months of this year a third of the country's electricity came from wind farms, research from Imperial College London has shown.
Hornsea 2: How big is the worlds largest offshore wind farm?
Hornsea Two is located 89km off the Yorkshire coast, adjacent to sister project Hornsea 1. The 1.3GW project comprises 165 wind turbines, which will help power over 1.4 million UK homes with low-cost renewable energy
Hornsea Projects Learn more about four offshore wind farm sites off the UK's Eas
The Hornsea Projects are four record-breaking offshore wind farms which Ørsted are operating, constructing and developing off the East Coast in the North Sea.
