Wind power growth in Asia is part of the regionís future

Annual statistics recently released by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) once again show the massive growth in cumulative wind farm capacity in Asia, to 82,398 MW last year from 61,106 MW at the end of 2010.

Wind energy growth in Asia is part of the regionís future. Annual statistics recently released by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) once again show the massive growth in cumulative wind farm capacity in Asia, to 82,398 MW last year from 61,106 MW at the end of 2010.

When matched with Asiaís continuing population increases, the GWEC statistics seem to indicate that the region as a whole is well placed to incorporate even greater amounts of wind power into its grids in coming decades as the world replaces dirty carbon energy sources with green sustainable electricity.

Trailing behind only the EU, which had a total of 93,957 MW of installed wind turbines capacity by the end of 2011, Asia was the second place regional leader with a total of 82,398 MW of installed wind farm capacity.
