The statistics show that installed wind power capacity increased 105% last year. Wind power has become China’s third largest electricity source, following thermal and hydro power.

Last March, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) published the Eleventh Five Year Pan for renewable energy, which aims to increase the installed wind power capacity to 10 million kilowatts in the country by 2010. China’s Ministry of Finance (MOF) said it will provide a subsidy of RMB 600 per kilowatt to the first fifty MW-class wind turbines of qualified enterprises.
