Wind Turbines Made in China or Made by China

Abstract China, a country with one of the world’s largest wind energy potentials, has seen tremendous growth in its wind power development in recent years. Yet Chinese manufacturers are still struggling to break into their own nation’s lucrative wind turbine industry. In 2005, domestic companies accounted for only 23 percent of China’s cumulative installed turbine market. The remainder of the production was dominated by foreign wind turbine giants, including Spain’s Gamesa, Denmark’s Vestas, and Germany’s Nordex.
