Summary

In comparison to the US, China’s installed wind capacity remained negligible during the early years of the 21st century, but the industry picked up pace from 2007 and saw a rapid increase in the number of wind turbine installations. In 2010, China’s installed wind capacity exceeded that of the US by about 5 Gigawatt (GW), a gap that has been widening ever since. However, despite China’s larger capacity, the US currently generates more electricity using wind energy than China, attributed to China’s slower wind speeds and inadequate grid infrastructure, which prevents it from fully accommodating the rapid increase in the number of wind turbines in remote areas.
