Exports still too low, warns DEWI

German turbine manufacturers are still way too dependent on their home market, warns the Deutsches Windenergie Institut (DEWI) in Wilhelmshaven. Although exports increased by 130% to 125.8 MW in 1998, this was merely 15.9% of the amount installed in Germany. Even market leader Enercon, which performed above average on the export market, only sold 32% of its turbines abroad. DEWI predicts continued market growth in Germany, boosted by the special planning privilege now granted to wind stations and land zoning policy. With the home market secure, the industry should devote efforts to developing a stronger presence on the world market, says DEWI.
