The global commissioning of onshore wind turbines declined 3 per cent in 2018, partly due to a slowdown in India and Germany, even as the growth is expected to bounce back in 2019, with a 32 per cent jump to 60 Gigawatt (Gw), clean energy research firm BNEF said.
Companies commissioned over 45 GW of onshore wind turbines globally in 2018 compared with 47 GW a year earlier. “Just four manufacturers accounted for more than a half, or 57 per cent, of the machines deployed: Denmark’s Vestas, China’s Goldwind, GE Renewable Energy of the U.S. and Spain’s Siemens Gamesa,” BNEF said in a statement.
Data shows that Vestas extended its lead in the industry, with 10.1 GW of its onshore turbines commissioned in 2018 – a global market share of 22 per cent compared with 16 per cent in 2017. Read More
