This report includes a database of 633 commercially available turbines, with 12 key details for each turbine. It also includes benchmarking information on the real-world performance of eight turbine models in Q1 2017. The report outlines market presence for some popular turbine models, provides expert reviews of the newer models, and analyses turbines’ capacity factor trends and key technical developments, as well as manufacturers’ business strategies.

The information contained in the wind turbine database was collected by Windpower Intelligence from publicly available information on the wind turbine manufacturers’ websites.

Energy production and stop-hours figures for Q1 2017 are extracted from WindMax, a quarterly journal publishing data and technical articles on wind turbine performance.
