China should have 150 to 253 gigawatts of wind power by 2020

Total installed wind power capacity will reach at least 150 gigawatts
by 2020 compared with 25.8 gigawatts at the end of 2009, according to
the China Wind Power Outlook 2010 report.

A more ambitious forecast by the publishers of the report --
Greenpeace, the Chinese Renewable Energy Industries Association
(CREIA) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) -- is 230 gigawatts
over the next 10 years.

That would be equal to 13 times the capacity of the Three Gorges Dam
and could cut 410 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions, or 150
million tonnes of coal consumption, said Yang Ailun of Greenpeace
China
.
In a more optimistic forecast, GWEC itself predicts China's wind power
capacity could reach 253 gigawatts by 2020.
