Renowned market overview wind energy market 2010 celebrates 20th anniversary Berlin, April 26, 2010 the German wind energy market has grown 2009 after two years of stagnation by imposing 15 percent – despite the global financial and economic crisis, which in addition, has resulted in plant and machine construction dramatic sales slumps. Internationally could put the wind industry by 25 percent. Thus the wind proves their growing importance for the global economy and energy supply impressively. Faced with the challenges of climate change, the decline in fossil energy resources and insight into the security of domestic energy supply is to be expected in the future with dynamic growth of wind energy. The most comprehensive market and technology overview of the German wind industry offers the new Yearbook of the Bundesverband WindEnergie, the BWE market overview 2010.
The publication is already celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. With the BWE market overview we have the structure of domestic wind energy since the first Edition accompanied in 1989″strongly, says Hermann Albers, President of the German wind energy Association Yearbook has become an institution for the entire industry.” Focus on the anniversary edition, the further expansion of wind power on land, the prospects for offshore wind energy, the growing market of small wind energy, as well as services are available for existing plants. Growth potential can be opened up considerable potential for wind energy wind energy in Germany on land including higher plant towers, improved leaf profile and greater rotor diameter. However, the use of these new technologies especially in South Germany is often hampered by politics and authorities. Repowering – the replacement of legacy assets through modern multi-megawatt – new opportunities for growth in the production of wind power opens for the wind energy – high castles of Lower Saxony, Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. The Market overview shows the example of the East Sea Island Fehmarn, how repowering can lead to a win-win situation for all parties involved: with higher energy yields and at the same time lower interventions in the landscape.
