Annual “high probability” additions of US wind capacity will average 5.8GW over the next three years, which would be the worst 36-month performance in the last decade even with the emergence of a fast-growing offshore sector, according to latest data from Hitachi Energy’s Velocity Suite.

The energy analytics firm’s Generating Unit Capacity Dataset shows installations with a high probability of occurring will total about 17.3GW from November 2022 through October 2025.

By comparison, three-year wind capacity installations totaled 38.6GW between 2019-21, or almost 13GW per year, and 22GW between 2017-2019, a 7.3GW
