Wind Power Asia 2007
Beijing, China - To tackle worsening air pollution, China recently raised its wind power target for the year 2020 to 30 gigawatts (GW). This business & technology event will give attendees an interesting insight into current wind energy related topics.
Since 2003 the rate of development in the Chinese wind energy industry has been higher than that of the overall national energy economy.
Significant opportunities continue to exist for foreign companies supplying technology and establishing joint ventures in the China market
The lure of China's huge but underexploited market, the government's drive for renewable energy and low production costs for exports to fast growing bigger markets in the United States and Europe have foreign and domestic firms rushing to set up wind farms or build production plants across the country.
"The cake is so big that I could afford an office made out of gold," said a senior official from one of the world's top turbine makers, based in China, who declined to be named. "There will be orders for everyone."
To tackle worsening air pollution, China recently raised its wind power target for the year 2020 to 30 gigawatts (GW) from 20 gigawatts, compared with its plan to achieve 40 gigawatts of nuclear power capacity by 2015.
More importantly, government officials have said that major power firms must generate at least 5 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by 2010 and 10 percent by 2020, a mandate that should fuel investment despite the prevalence of cheap coal.
High-calibre experts from the industry, the wind energy industry and politics will be informing and answering questions throughout the
programme of conferences, forums and workshops during Wind Power Asia 2007.
