The Renewable Energy Planning Database (REPD) tracks the progress of projects through the planning system:

https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/renewable-energy-planning-data.

The September 2014 version of the REPD shows that in 2014, 139 onshore wind installations in the UK had received planning consent and 189 had been refused. The dates for approval and refusal reflects the date of determination of appeal (where appeal decision reached), otherwise the date of determination of original application.
