China may Add 10,000MW Wind Power Installed Capacity in 2010
Jan 21, 2010 - SinoCast
Shi Pengfei, Deputy President of the Chinese Wind Energy Association (CWEA), yesterday estimated that China's newly-added wind power installed capacity could reach 12,000MW in 2009, but that for 2010 would slightly reduce to 10,000MW or so.
The decline should be mainly ascribed to the development bottleneck of domestic power grids. As of last yearend, the country had connected about 16,130MW wind power generation sets with the power grids, including more than 50,000MW ones installed in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, north China.
As a whole, the state-owned companies dominate China's wind power equipment industry now. Sinovel Windtec Co., Ltd. and Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology Co., Ltd. (SZSE: 002202), notably, have grown into two of the world's top wind power equipment manufacturers.
More than 80 wind power generator makers and over 50 fan blade producers had been incorporated in the nation by the 2009-end, said Mr. Shi, adding that the competition would be more serious.
