China's wind power installed capacity increased by 73.3% year-on-year last year

On March 24, the Wind Energy Professional Committee (China Wind Energy Association) of the Chinese Renewable Energy Society released a report a few days ago. During the past year, the number of new wind power installations in China has increased significantly, and the development of wind power in China has further accelerated.

According to the “2010 China Wind Power Installed Capacity Statistics” report published by the China Wind Energy Association, China added 12,904 new wind turbines in 2010, with an installed capacity of 18,927.99 MW, an increase of 37.1% year-on-year; 34,485 installed wind turbines were installed. Capacity of 44733.29 MW, an increase of 73.3% year-on-year.

According to the statistics of the report, by the end of 2010, Inner Mongolia, Gansu, and Hebei have ranked among the top three newly installed capacity and cumulative installed capacity of wind power in China. Among them, Inner Mongolia added 4,616.85MW of wind power capacity in 2010, 3,706MW in Gansu, and 2133.4MW in Hebei.

Among the top 20 wind turbine manufacturers, Sinovel has ranked first in the industry with 4,386 megawatts of new installed capacity and 1,038 megawatts of cumulative installed capacity, with a new installed capacity market share of 23.2%, cumulative installed capacity. Market share reached 22.4%. The market share of the new installed capacity and cumulative installed capacity of the top three companies, Huarui, Goldwind and Dongqi, exceeded half of the total market share.

According to industry insiders, after the nation launched a large-scale tender for offshore wind power concessions in 2010, the space for wind power industry development has further increased. According to the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” announced recently and the seven strategic emerging industries identified last year, the Chinese wind power industry spanning multiple fields such as energy saving and environmental protection, high-end equipment manufacturing, and new energy will continue to be the focus of policy support. The projects that are promoted have a promising development prospect.

At the same time, due to the nuclear fuel leakage accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan, more secure renewable energy projects such as wind power, solar energy, and biomass energy have also received increasing attention from countries around the world. It is expected that the installed capacity of wind power in the country and the world will be further expanded in the future.
