The European wind energy association has said that because of the uncertainty of the policy and economic growth, by 2020, the European wind power installed capacity growth or earlier will be lower than expected.
The European wind energy association said in a report, in 2020, the European wind power installed capacity will reach 192400 megawatts, up 64% from 2013. However, the numerical value with five years ago to predict low target of 230000 mw, 40000 mw. Vestas, Siemens, and love, kang and other producers of wind turbines have expressed disappointment.
The European wind energy association, deputy chief executive Justin Wilkes, said: "because of the uncertainty of the regulation, the European Union is on the discussion of the climate and energy as well as the rapid development of national system will help to improve the new situation."
In fact, the European commission has revised the 2020 estimates about ultimate power demand, the total will reach 2956 KWH, the estimate of 3336 than in 2009 too KWH was reduced by 11%. The European wind energy association, said the decline of estimator will affect demand for power all new capacity of power generation technology, but also affect the investment plan of the European market, new orders and existing capacity.
As the economic burden is overweight, some European countries have cut back on renewable energy, including wind power subsidies. The European wind energy association, says countries such as Germany, France, Britain and Poland sea wind wind power market has quickly identified the support the development of policy reform.
According to the latest European wind energy association estimates that by 2020, the European wind power installed capacity will reach 192000 megawatts, including the 23500 megawatts of offshore wind power equipment, offshore wind power investment will reach 124 billion euros. By 2020, will produce 44.2 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity, wind power can meet nearly 15% of the electricity consumption in the European Union.
Wilkes said: "the stability of the European policy is restored, Germany, France, Britain and Poland onshore wind power market will occupy the key status of wind power generation capacity, for offshore wind, have confidence in Britain, France is to speed up the deployment, the Netherlands should continue to push the industry in 2020 direction."
