China’s wind power market
In 2009 China became the fastest-growing wind energy market in the world, almost doubling its wind energy generation capacity with the creation of 13.7 GW of wind assets, bringing the country’s installed capacity to 26 GW, making it the largest wind power market in the world.
Gamesa forecasts further growth and expects to double its sales in China in the period 2009-2013, as well as hoping to double its effective wind production capactity in China to more than 1 GW in 2013.
