Description:

Government plans the construction of six onshore and two offshore and coastal wind power bases in the upcoming five years under the 12th five year plan for wind power technology development.

The target is to add 10MW of offshore wind prototypes by 2015.

Over course of next five years industry will be focused on development of following offshore wind systems:

  • 3 - 5MW direct-drive permanent magnet synchronous generator wind turbine and component design and manufacturing and industrialization, and
  • 7MW class wind turbine and component design manufacture, installation and operation of complete industrialization of technology and promote the industrialization of China's large-capacity wind turbine.

On top of that, Wind Energy Resource Assessment Center was established in March 2012. The institution is responsible for data gathering on wind resources availability in China as well as for creating database and informing on intellectual property rights about wind farms designs that are in line with China’s environment and terrain conditions.
