China’s installed wind capacity could treble by 2025.
A new report suggests installations could rise from 115.6GW in 2014 to 347.2GW in the next 10 years.
The country’s wind power generation is expected to be dominated by onshore capacity, accounting for 334.7GW, it adds.
Global wind installations are also growing and are expected to reach 962.6GW during the same period.
Harshavardhan Reddy Nagatham, GlobalData’s Analyst said: “There will be sustainable future growth in India, Australia, Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, Thailand and Taiwan as APAC [Asia Pacific] wind installations are forecast to increase from 148.2 GW in 2014 to 437.8 GW by 2025, accounting for approximately 45.5% of the global total.
“Wind installations will also gain momentum in South and Central America, with countries including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico adding up to 45.6 GW during the forecast period.”
The Middle East and Africa region, which is currently at a “nascent stage” of wind market development, is expected to be the other significant contributor to capacity additions.
