Small Wind World Report 2012 - World Wind Energy Association

Zum Buch:

On the occasion of the 3rd World Summit for Small Wind during the New Energy fair in Husum (Germany), WWEA released the first Small Wind World Report. For the first time, data about the status of small wind turbines all over the world has been gathered and published.

The total number of small wind turbines installed all over the world reached 656'000 units as of the end of 2010, after 521'000 in 2009 and 460'000 in 2008. These small wind turbines represent a total capacity of around 440 MW (end of 2010), compared with a total capacity of 240 GW of large wind turbines.

The largest share of the small wind turbines can be found in two countries, China (450'000 units/166 MW) and the USA (144'000 units/179 MW), followed by the medium sized markets with 2-22'000 installed units and 5-50 MW total capacity: UK, Canada, Germany, Spain, Poland, Japan and Italy.

In 2020, WWEA expects that the total installed small wind capacity will reach 3'800 MW, representing an almost tenfold increase compared with 2010. The market for new small wind turbines will have a volume of around 750 MW in the year 2020.

Today, more than 330 manufacturers of small wind turbines have been identified in 40 countries on all continents, and another estimated 300 companies are manufacturing equipment for the small wind industry. Most of the manufacturers are still small and medium sized companies. More than half of these manufacturers can be found in only five countries, namely in China and the USA, as well as in Germany, Canada and the UK.

In spite of a vibrant small wind sector in many countries, only few governments are offering specific support policies for small wind. Less than ten countries are offering sufficient feed-in tariffs for small wind, and there is almost a complete lack of support schemes in the development countries, where the demand for small wind turbines would be huge, especially in non-electrified areas. Only in China, small wind turbine contributes today on a large scale to rural electrification, which is also thanks to the relatively modest price level of small wind turbines in the country.

The full version of WWEA's Small Wind World Report 2012 includes:
- basic statistical information
- a small wind world market forecast 2020,
- an overview of policies, driving factors & challenges,
- detailed country reports,
- a small wind manufacturers catalogue with information about more than 330 small wind companies and their products.
