China Appetite for Renewable Energy to Drive Wind Power Installation Capacity: TechSci Research

Favourable economic and operating environment coupled with focus on offshore wind power development to result in phenomenal growth of wind power installations in China.
According to the research report “China Wind Power Market Outlook 2014” by TechSci Research, The wind power installation in China has been experiencing exponential growth in recent years due to favourable economic and operating environment. The cumulative installed capacity of wind power in China surpassed 25 GW by the end of 2009 as compared to a capacity of around 1.3 GW in 2005. China added more than 13 GW of new wind power installed capacity in 2009, thereby accounting for almost one-third of new capacity additions globally. By dominating the new wind …
