Onshore wind power grows as forecast in 2013, but 2014 and 2015 remain highly uncertain

Berlin.  As forecast by the German Wind Energy Association (BWE) and VDMA Power Systems, the market for onshore wind turbines is growing. The statistics published by Deutsche WindGuard on behalf of BWE und VDMA Power Systems based on an up-to-date survey of manufacturers shows stable growth. Nearly 60 percent of the 2,998 megawatts of newly installed capacity was built in central and southern Germany. Wind power is growing especially strongly in these areas, but the north remains an anchor of stability for onshore wind power with over 40 percent of the market.

Onshore wind power statistics for first half of 2014 in Germany: Onshore wind power grows strongly

In the first half of 2014, the German market for onshore wind turbines grew by around 66 percent year over year, with some 1,723 megawatts having been installed. The sector attributes this strong growth to some overlapping effects, specifically a race to get projects completed before the new Renewable Energy Act (dubbed EEG 2.0) takes effect in August along with specifications of where turbines can be built in a number of German states. In the long run, an EEG 3.0 will have to provide a reliable investment environment and a calculable growth rate.

Onshore wind energy, expansion figures for the first half of 2015 in Germany: The German wind industry takes a breather

The figures for onshore wind in Germany show a downturn in the first six months of this year. Despite this, the trade associations predict a net additional installation for the whole of 2015 of at least 4,000 megawatts, which would make climate goals achievable. The manufacturers are however burdened by a boom and bust market situation, and perch on a system that will guarantee continuous future expansion.

Land-based wind energy: Analysis of the German market in 2015

Successful wind energy expansion, but the EEG amendment gives rise to growing uncertainty in the industry.
With a net increase of 3,535.8 megawatts, 2015 was the second strongest year for onshore wind energy expansion in Germany. But the draft Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) 2016 does away with binding expansion targets, and will manage wind energy expansion on land by means of annually variable tendering quantities. This means uncertainty for manufacturers and operators.
