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.

Fate of huge Scottish wind projects decided by UK Government today
SSE Renewables’ 1.5 gigawatt (GW) Seagreen Wind Farm, EDP Renewables’ 850 megawatt (MW) Moray West Offshore Wind Farm and Red Rock Power’s 784 MW Inch Cape Wind Farm are all competing for a contract.
UK holds $25bn offshore wind farm auction, the first in a decade
Combined, the sites have the potential to host a total of 7 gigawatts (GW) to 8.5 GW of electricity generation. The contest is intended to draw as much as 20 billion pounds ($25bn).
UK Offshore Wind Strike Prices Slide Down to GBP 39.65/MWh
Offshore wind projects selected in the third Contracts for Difference (CfD) Allocation Round 3 will be delivered at a strike price as low as GBP 39.65/MWh, a near 30% reduction compared to the second CfD auction held in 2017.
Offshore wind boost as 2.8GW of new UK capacity edges closer to development
More than 2.8GW of new UK renewable power capacity could be delivered through proposed offshore wind farm extensions, after The Crown Estate yesterday agreed to take forward seven projects to the planning...
In total, six offshore wind projects with a combined capacity of 5,466MW
The six selected projects are the 1,200MW Doggerbank Creyke Beck A P1, the 1,200MW Doggerbank Creyke Beck B P1, the 1,200MW Doggerbank Teeside A P1, the 12MW Forthwind, the 454MW Seagreen Phase 1, and the 1,400MW Sophia Phase 1.
