China's installed wind power capacity to hit 10 mln kW

China's installed capacity of wind power is expected to reach 10 million kilowatt (kW) in 2008, and to double in 2010, thanks to the favorable government policy, electricity price and technology innovation, according to sources.

China plans to expand the installed capacity of nuclear power, aiming to make it account for more than 5% of the country's total installed capacity by 2010, said the vice chairman of the National Development and Reform Commission Zhang Guobao.

According to the country's 11th five-year plan for economic and social development (2006-2010), it targets to realize 40,000 megawatt of operating installed capacity by 2020. At present, China's operating installed capacity of nuclear power stations is 8,600 megawatt.

Many domestic wind power facility producers intend to begin new projects or increase production, and the newly increased installed wind power capacity will be 4 million kW in 2008, 5.5 million kW in 2009, and 7 million kW in 2010.
