A Forest Trends’ report on the 2011 voluntary carbon offset market has determined a marked increase in the prominence of wind power-generated carbon offsets in the overall global voluntary market for carbon offsets. 2011 saw renewable energy projects, in general, supplant forest carbon sequestration projects as the greatest number of carbon offset transactions by volume. Wind power projects made up roughly two-thirds of these renewable energy projects.
