China will install and connect to the grid 18 GW of wind energy in 2013, according to Liu Tienan, head of China’s National Energy Bureau (NEB).

Despite the on-going global economic slowdown, growth predictions about China’s wind power sector are optimistic.

On Monday, the deputy director general of China’s National Energy Administration acknowledged that wind energy is the third largest source of electricity in the world’s most populous nation after thermal and hydro power.
