Emerging markets are undeniably today’s hot spot when considering wind power projects and there are clear indications that developing economies will soon dominate the chart with top markets to invest in.
It is important to remember that renewable energy development in emerging markets follows a path very different from the one set by the centralised grids of the industrialised world.
Renewables growth …

Madrid, 27th July 2015. The worst predictions have come true: Spain does not attractinvestment in new wind power capacity. In the first half of 2015, not a single megawatthas been installed in the country, leaving the total at 22,986 MW. This makes it harderto comply with the draft of the Government´s Energy Plan, which expects about 5,000MW and 7 billion …
