2012 global wind power: spring in the cold winter

against the backdrop of the sluggish global economic recovery, the wind power industry is also difficult to survive in 2012, and the general environment of the main wind power markets is not friendly. In the United States, the wind power production tax credit policy (hereinafter referred to as PTC), which has lasted for nearly 20 years, is about to expire. In China, the wind power industry, which has experienced rapid growth, has entered a period of tightening and adjustment. Most wind power enterprises have poor performance, and the problems of wind abandonment and poor consumption remain to be solved. However, in this seemingly cold winter environment, the global wind power industry is still in a huge impact on the performance of the surface roughness of wood. From the domestic point of view, it is shown as: moving forward under pressure, the development is also full of spring

United States: fight for the last bus

under the expectation that the PTC policy is about to end, wind power developers are scrambling to get on the last bus. According to the data released by the American Wind Energy Association, by the end of September 2012, the cumulative installed capacity of wind power in the United States had reached 51.6 GW, including 4.7 GW of new installed capacity, a new high since 2009. The U.S. energy information administration predicts that the U.S. wind power generation will increase by 16% in 2012, exceeding the level in 2011

the upstream wind power equipment manufacturers in the United States experienced ups and downs in 2012. In the United States, more than 470 companies are distributed in the manufacturing departments of wind power related equipment and components, such as wind turbines, wind turbine blades, wind towers, etc. To prepare for the rainy day, most of these manufacturing enterprises were forced to lay off their employees in the United States in response to the expiring PTC policy. In Vestas, for example, the company cut nearly 1500 jobs in Colorado. Gramlik Robb, senior vice president of the U.S. Wind Energy Commission, said that with the policy pending, the wind energy industry is in a very embarrassing situation and it is easy to lose its development direction

although experiencing a period of policy turbulence, the United States made a great breakthrough in wind energy technology in 2012. Especially in the field of low wind speed utilization, the latest low wind speed wind turbines can be used in areas that are usually not suitable for wind power generation, which makes wind energy enter a wider range of application areas

Europe: installed capacity exceeds 100 GW

2012, the European wind power market showed strong growth momentum. In September, 2012, the European Wind Energy Commission announced that the development of wind energy in Europe has made milestone progress, and the total installed capacity of wind power has reached 100 GW. According to the organization, the installed capacity of 100 GW can meet the power demand of 57million households every year, equivalent to the power generation capacity of 39 nuclear power stations. What is more remarkable is that the first 10 gigawatts of the 100 gigawatts took about 20 years to complete, and the next 90 gigawatts took only 13 years to achieve

in Europe, the cumulative installed capacity champion of wind power is Germany, whose new installed capacity in the first half of 2012 was 941 MW, pushing the country's total installed capacity to 30 GW. Spain ranks second in Europe in terms of total installed capacity, with a new installed capacity of 414 MW in the first half of the year, and a total installed capacity of 22 GW in the country. Although the new installed capacity of Italy exceeded that of Spain in the first half of the year, with 490 MW, the total installed capacity of wind power in the country is still less than that of Spain, with 7.2 GW. In the first half of 2012, the new installed capacity in France and Britain was also large, 650 MW and 822 MW respectively. In the first half of the year, the new installed capacity of Portugal was 19 MW, with a total installed capacity of 6.48 GW. Among the above European countries, except Spain and Portugal, compared with the installed capacity in the first half of 2011, the installed capacity of tightening bolts and other steps in other countries increased in 2012

it is remarkable that the growth rate of emerging markets in Eastern Europe is also very rapid. In the first half of 2012, the installed capacity of wind power in Romania was 274 MW, an increase of 33% year-on-year. Over the same period, the installed capacity of wind power in Ukraine has experienced an astonishing growth rate of 64%

in addition, offshore wind power in Europe is also experiencing vigorous development. Among them, in December 2012, the London Array project of the UK offshore wind farm completed the installation of the last batch of turbines, marking the completion of the major infrastructure installation of the world's largest offshore wind power project with a installed capacity of 630 megawatts

Asia: China and India lead the Asian market

in 2011, China's cumulative installed capacity of wind power ranked first in the world and led the world. Although the new installed capacity for the whole year of 2012 will not be available until 2013, various forecasts show that China will still lead the global wind power installed market in 2012. In the first half of 2012, China's new wind power installed capacity was nearly 5.3 GW, with a year-on-year increase of 41.8%, accounting for 32% of the world's total new installed capacity, and China's total installed capacity reached about 67.7 GW. The world wind energy association predicts, China will still maintain the world's largest wind power "Our position in the responsible market, but the growth rate may slow down.

it is not easy for India, which is short of electricity, to add 1.4 GW of wind power installed capacity in the first half of 2012. However, the report released by Ernst & Young shows that the growth rate of wind power installed capacity in India may slow down in the second half of the year. Because the two key incentive policies of the government to support the development of wind power expire in the second half of the year. India's new energy and renewable energy The Ministry has suggested the government to resume preferential and subsidy policies for wind power taxation. But whether these two policies can be restored is still unknown. In short, the lack of policy coherence has become an important obstacle to the development of wind power in India
