Wind sector boosts German economy

Germany Trade & Invest, the foreign trade and inward investment agency of the Federal Republic of Germany, has highlighted that Germany's wind industry supply chain is the most extensive worldwide.

With an export ratio of 75%, Germany supplies growing wind markets in Europe, Asia, and America. Germany's foothold in this industry is attracting international investors, according to the agency.

"Wind energy manufacturers and suppliers from all over the world look to Germany. The network of expertise here covers the entire industry spectrum, from R&D to installations and repairs," said Anne Bräutigam, manager for the wind energy sector at Germany Trade & Invest.

In order to assert the supremacy of Germany in Europe, the agency mentioned that with cumulative installations of 27,214 MW in December, no other European country produces more energy from wind. New installations in Germany totaled 1,551 MW in 2010, of which the largest share went to new onshore capacity.

Offshore installations and re-powering are expected to account for a growing share of the future market. In the offshore segment, wind parks Alpha Ventus and EnBW Baltic 1 are standing and new projects are underway.
