And by 2010, the central government will have boosted wind power production to 20,000MW, announced Song Yanqin, deputy director of the research management and international collaboration division of China's Energy Research Institute. The institute is part of the Beijing-based National Development and Report Commission, the agency tasked with implementing energy conservation and emissions reduction programs.
