While there has been significant steps taken by Africa to utilise its wind energy resources, the Global Wind Council has reported that only three African countries presently have installed wind power capacity of up to 1 gigawatt (GW), and the total current installed capacity is only about 6.5 GW. The World Bank Group reports that Africa is presently only using 0.01 percent of its wind energy resources. Furthermore, wind-based electricity in Africa currently only accounts for less than 1 percent of global installed wind capacity.
