Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If we were to have the same graph with the comparison being in the top 5 countries for each technology, wind wouldn't look as good.

For most of the 1991-2006 period, c. 80% of wind capacity was in only five countries: Germany, Spain, India, USA, Denmark. Though the reason wind played a small role elsewhere wasn't lack of technological capacity, but the lack of the legal and financial framework, I think that makes the comparison fair.
