In a few weeks from now, the Global Wind Energy Council, a representative body of the wind power industry, will come out with its assessment of the industry’s performance in 2012 and the issues confronting it. It had forecast a 13 per cent growth in installed capacity in 2012. The statistics when they are released will show whether this was achieved or the forecast was optimistic. For 2013, the council has forecast a marginal drop in installed capacity.
