Peak oil turned out to be a massive nothing-burger, though. :)

They were pretty close with the estimation for total wind capacity of 680 GW. I can't seem to find any data newer than 2018, but total wind capacity by the end of 2018 was around 564.95 GW, so we could probably achieve 680 GW by the end of this year. They did get one thing completely wrong though:

 

 

Wind power is by far the renewable source with the largest growth in worldwide capacity during the last decade.

 

Total installed wind capacity in 2010: 180.94 GW

Total installed wind capacity in 2018: 564.95 GW

Increase = 212.2% increase

 

Total installed solar capacity in 2010: 39.53 GW

Total installed solar capacity in 2018: 487.83 GW

Increase = 1,133.3% increase
