Commissioning of onshore wind turbines is predicted to grow this year – after slipping in 2017, according to a new report by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF).
There was a 12% fall last year, which BNEF attributes – in part – to a ‘slowdown in China’, with developers commissioning a total of 47GW. But the figure is predicted to rise 17% over the next 12 months to 55GW.
And Danish manufacturer, Vestas, was the number one supplier of turbines internationally, leading the way as part of the big four, along with Siemens Gamesa, Goldwind and General Electric. Combined, the four account for 53% of the market.
