Wind turbine manufacturers - installation capacity in the U.S. 2019

The American company, GE Wind, was the largest wind turbine manufacturer in the United States in terms of installation capacity at around 4,146 megawatts in 2019. With a total capacity of approximately 3,003 megawatts, the Danish manufacturer, Vestas, ranked second in that year.

General Electric invests in renewables

GE Wind is a branch from the General Electric division, GE Renewable Energy. Created in 2015, GE Renewable combined the wind power assets of two GE purchases, and the headquarters was moved from upstate New York to Paris, France. Though based abroad, GE Wind remains the only American company among the leading wind turbine manufacturers in the United States.

The globalized wind turbine market

With its extensive overseas operations, Copenhagen-based Vestas dominates the international wind turbine manufacturer market with over 20 percent of the market share. Vestas delivered more electricity to the United States than to any other country, followed by deliveries to Sweden. The United States has the second highest cumulative installed capacity of wind power worldwide after China, but still relies heavily on international manufacturers such as Vestas.
