This presentation, given by Sebastian Meyer at the Global Wind Power conference in October 2008, examined the historical development of China’s wind market. He then used that historical perspective to examine the ability of the Chinese wind market to continue to grow through 2011, looking at developer’s participation, capital market participation, government requirements through its Renewable Energy Law, as well as grid connection issues and capacity utilization of installed turbines. He found that it near-term demand is secure and on-target, but longer-term growth faces a growing number of challenges, especially the deficient amount of attention paid to actual electricity generated for the grid, measured in kWh, in favor of total kW installed.
