Chinese wind power!

I commented a while ago on a post at Worldchanging that we hadn't seen anything yet, and wait until the Chinese started making 5MW wind turbines. Well, look what's happened. Vestas starts up a joint venture factory, Repower managing another, capacity growth running at 66 per cent annually. Crystal ball team - whoops - analyst house predicts that the government target of 30GW installed capacity by 2020 will be bust by over 90 per cent - 54 being more like it.

Maybe they'll soon be building these. In other news, Ireland gets a big electricity storage system using flow batteries to stockpile wind-generated power. It's not Chinese, but it's cool.
