The International Wind Energy Committee (Global Wind Energy Council/GWEC) secretary general Steve Sawyer said in 2009 Chinese will become the world's largest producer of wind turbines, which will bring a new revolution to the rapidly developing field of renewable energy. According to the agency's data, although the 2007 wind power accounted for only 1% of the world's electricity supply, but the rapid development of wind power by 2020 will meet the electricity demand in the world 12%, which will be beneficial to control global warming.
In response to global climate change, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, renewable energy has attracted more and more investment, especially wind power, it provides electricity than solar and bio energy and other renewable energy to. According to Sawyer introduction, by the end of 2009, China's wind power generation capacity will be increased from the current 4 million kilowatts to about 10 million kilowatts, which is currently half of the world market capacity. In 2007, the world's new wind power generation capacity of 17 million ~ 19 million kilowatts, the total fan power generation capacity of more than 90 million kilowatts, in 2008, the global wind power generation capacity will be more than 100 million kilowatts.
According to Sawyer, gold wind two wind machine manufacturers and Chinese Huarui have been made in 2009 and 2010 a large export plan, there is no China fan outlet, but once the government to promote the export will be rapid development, the members (more than 1500 companies in more than 50 countries) prepared for in the domestic fan of the world the impact of the market to. At present, the world's largest fan manufacturer is Denmark's Vestas, the other more important producers are Spain's Gamesa, the United States General Electric, India's Suzlon and Germany's Enercon.
