World wind-power market growth continues

Steady Increase

Global megawatt (MOO) installed capacity increased by 25 % to a total of 7,636 MW by the end of 1997. In 1997, a total of 1,566 MW of new capacity was sold, an increase of 21 % over 1996.

It is expected that the boost will continue in the years to come. The five-year forecast predicts some 12,600 MW of new installations in the period from 1998 through 2002. This forecast represents a cumulative sales value - 5 years ahead of 12 billion USD (1997 price level).

Top Ten

Ten manufacturers supplied 90 % of the new wind capacity installed in 1997. The 'Top Ten' is led by Danish companies NEG-Micon, Vestas, Bonus, and the German Enercon. This year, three Spanish companies (Made, Desarollos, Gamesa) and a US company (Zond/Enron) advanced to the list.
