Global Wind power boom continues despite economic woes in 2009


The expectations for 2009 were dire for all industry sectors, and wind power was no exception. Both the economic and even more so the financial crisis hit the sector hard, and even GWEC’s forecast of a 12.5% annual market growth seemed overly optimistic to many in March 2009.

In fact, the annual market grew a staggering 41.5% compared to 2008. More than 38 GW of new wind power capacity was installed around the world in 2009, bringing the total installed capacity up to 158.5 GW. This represents a year-on-year growth of 31.7%. A third of these additions were made in China, which doubled its installed capacity yet again.

Wind energy is now an important player in the world’s energy markets. The 2009 market for turbine installations was worth about 45 bn € or 63 bn US$ and GWEC estimates that about half a million people are now employed by the wind industry around the world.

The main markets driving this growth continue to be Asia, North America and Europe, each of which installed more than 10 GW of new capacity in 2009. Asia’s development driven by booming Chinese marketFor the first time, Asia was the world’s largest regional market for wind energy, with capacity additions amounting to 15.4 GW.

China was the world’s largest market in 2009, more than doubling its capacity from 12.1 GW in 2008 to 25.8 GW, adding a staggering 13.8 GW of capacity, and slipped past Germany to become the world’s second largest wind power market by a very narrow margin.


The growing wind power market in China has encouraged domestic production of wind turbines and components, and the Chinese manufacturing industry is becoming increasingly mature, stretching over the whole supply chain. According to the Chinese Renewable Energy Industry Association (CREIA), the supply is starting to not only satisfy domestic demand, but also meet international needs, especially for components. Two Chinese companies, Sinovel and Goldwind, are now among the world’s top five turbine manufacturers, and there are first moves by Chinese manufacturers to enter the international markets.The planning and development for the ‘Wind Base’ programme, which aims to build 127.5 GW of wind capacity in six Chinese provinces, is well underway, and construction has started on some projects. Given the current size of the market, it is expected that the even the unofficial target of 150 GW will be met well ahead of 2020.

India also continued growing its wind market with 1.3 GW of new installed capacity, bringing its total up to 10.9 GW. The leading wind power state remains Tamil Nadu with 4.3 GW installed, followed by Maharashtra and Karnataka. With the introduction of a national Generation Based Incentive at the end of 2009, and a real push by the government to support renewable energy development, substantial growth is expected in the near future, and the industry forecasts additions of at least 2.2 GW for 2010.Other Asian countries with new capacity additions in 2009 include Japan (178 MW, taking the total to 2.1 GW), South Korea (112 MW for a total of 348 MW) and Taiwan (78 MW for a total of 436 MW).
