The WWEC 2004 takes place in the Chinese capital city at a time when the Chinese government has committed itself to substantially increase the share of renewable energy, mainly wind energy. The Chinese government’s official target is to increase the installed capacity from currently 600 MW up to 1.000 MW by the end of the year of 2005, 4.000 MW in 2010 and 20.000 MW in 2020. An appropriate renewable energy legislation to speed up the development of the wind industry in the country has been announced to come into force in the near future.
