China added 18.9GW of new wind power capacity, thereby reaching a total installed capacity of 44.7GW. This figure, which was published by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), the Chinese Renewable Energy Industry Association (CREIA) and the Chinese Wind Energy Association (CWEA), is substantially higher than the initial estimate released earlier this year.

These new numbers for China also result in revised figures for global wind power growth in 2010, with the new capacity added over the year amounting to 38.3GW, taking the total to 197GW, which represents a 24% growth. The growth of wind power in China has also spurred a boom in domestic manufacturing, and four out of the top 10 global wind turbine manufacturers are now Chinese, with Sinovel and Goldwind ranking second and fourth respectively. The Chinese government report Development Planning of New Energy Industry optimistically calculated that the cumulative installed capacity of China’s wind power will reach 200 GW.
