China had completed wind power installed capacity of more than 10,000MW by the 2008-end, ranking No.5 around the world, said Zhang Guobao, director for the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), the country's macro-economy regulator.

The Chinese central government gave a strong support to the renewable energy development in 2008, and total newly-added wind power installed capacity exceeded 4,000MW. By far, around 800,000MW power generation sets have been installed across China.

Mr. Zhang estimated that China would gradually outraced other countries and territories in the coming several years, by virtue of an aggregate wind power installed capacity of 20,000MW to 30,000MW. Presently, the global wind power industry keeps a fast growth, and total installed capacity has beaten 100,000MW.

China has arranged the construction of a batch of over-1,000MW wind power bases in Gansu, Hebei, Jilin, Jiangsu, and Inner Mongolia, and several 10,000MW wind power bases will be built in 2020.
