China wants alternative energy.

The economical boom in China has caused a huge rise in the need for energy. The chineese government have among other things, buildt a large damn in the yangtze river, and are now planning on huge wind energy parks.

It has long been expected that China would order huge wind parks, and this was confirmed when an official order was placed at wind mill producer Vestas in March.

So far, China ordered 280 wind mills with a capacity of 850 KW a piece. This gives the wind mill park a capacity of 238 MW which is equivilant to a small coal plant. This is only the beginning and it is expected that china may purchase more wind mills later this year.
