ACP, which works with solar, wind, energy storage and power transmission companies to promote renewable energy, said the U.S. added 9,915 MW of onshore and offshore wind, battery storage, and utility-scale solar power generation capacity in the first half of the year, a 17% increase over the same period in 2020.

The total includes commissioning of 5,620 MW of generation capacity in the second quarter of the year, a 13% jump from the April-to-June period in 2020. The data was published in ACP’s “Clean Power Quarterly 2021 Q2 Market Report.”
