With countries around the world trying to cut down on their dependence on fossil fuels, renewable energy sources are finding a market worldwide. Be it solar power or wind power, the last couple of years has witnessed a marked growth in these markets.

According to estimates by the Global Wind Energy Council, by the end of 2009, the global installed capacity of wind powered generators stood at 159.2 GW. This capacity increased further in 2010 and by the end of 2010, the total installed capacity stood at 175 GW. With countries such as Denmark, the US, Spain, and Germany making a distinct mark on the wind power industry and driving the growth in the market, it is expected that in the coming years, the market is going to grow even further. Wind power is the most popular form of renewable energy resource used worldwide today and with the support governments around the world are providing the industry in terms of incentives and subsidies, barriers to the growth of wind power remain low.

Taiyou Research presents a complete analysis of the global market for wind power. Covering the major countries using wind power, this report brings together a variety of information to give the reader a complete idea about what’s happening in the global market for wind power.
