webmaster Posted August 20, 2006 Report Share Posted August 20, 2006 WIND POWER Capacity increased by 11.3 GW in 2005 to reach a total of 59 GW. Germany is the world leader, with 31 percent of the world's installed capacity, followed by Spain, the USA, India and Denmark. The big surprise among the five leaders was the recovery and surge in production in the USA after years of stagnation. Guaranteed production tax credits, valid for a three year period instead of annually have justified the new investment in renewable energy. Growth is expected to continue. As the leaders consolidate and re-power smaller installations with larger turbines, the market is now widening and entering a new phase with many new countries entering the market for renewable energy resources, such as wind. @: http://www.powermanagementdesignline.com/news/191901915 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
