The wind power installed capacity in China will increase from approximately 149GW in 2015 to over 495GW by 2030, representing a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 9%, according to Renewable Energy Focus.

China has already the highest wind power globally by far, accounting for a third of cumulative wind power capacity worldwide in 2015, followed by the US with 17% of the global share.

However, a research conducted by the consulting firm GlobalData stated that despite China’s wind development achievements to date, the sector faces the key problem of its increasing inability to accommodate the rapid surge in the number of wind turbines in remote areas due to its underdeveloped electrical grid.
