WORLDWIDE: Some of the world's biggest turbine manufacturers are limping back to health with a vote of confidence from the stock markets, according Windpower Monthly's Windicator.
Although 3GW of new capacity has been added since our last report, there are now signs of a slowdown in the rate of worldwide growth.
The wind power industry's miserable start to 2010 continued into the second quarter as a slew of weak earnings figures meant that stocks continued to haemorrhage value.
Global wind power capacity will more than treble to 58,000 MW within five years -- and it will increase to 145,000 MW by 2010. The projection for the decade represents an eightfold growth in capacity, but even then wind will only provide 1.78% of the predicted world electric energy output in ten years' time. These are just some of the many conclusions reached by Danish company BTM Consult in its latest World Market Update, the fifth in an annual series on international wind energy development.
