  • Wind Farm in India is 500th Kyoto Project in a Developing Country
    Feb 14, 2007 - EERE Network News

    The Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) announced Monday that an 8.75-megawatt wind facility in Gujurat, India, is the 500th project to be registered under the Kyoto Protocol's Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). The Kyoto Protocol specifies greenhouse gas reduction requirements for its participating countries, but allows countries to earn credits toward those requirements through emissions-reducing investments in developing countries. Even though developing countries don't have specific reduction goals, the CDM helps reduce the growth of green.

  • China and India trying to harness the power of wind
    Sep 19, 2006 - Angela Macdonald-Smith - Bloomberg News

    Global scramble to develop alternative sources of energy has industry executives focusing on emerging markets
    China and India are accelerating development of wind power, luring companies including the turbine maker Vestas Wind Systems, as restrictions hamper wind farm construction in traditional markets like Australia. A venture, partly owned by CLP Holdings of Hong Kong, earlier this year scrapped more than $400 million of projects in Australia, where quotas on renewable energy have almost been met, in favor of China and India. Vestas Wind, the world's biggest wind turbine maker, and Suzlon Energy of India, Asia's largest wind turbine maker, are expanding in China.
