Small wind
...defined as 100kW capacity or less, has experienced major growth in the past decade. The market for small wind recently grew 35% in a single year and the industry has set ambitious growth targets continuing at 18-21% through 2010. The U.S. is a leading producer of small wind turbines, with one-third of the world market commanded by four U.S. producers. AWEA predicts continued growth in this market that has about 45 MW of installed capacity in small wind turbines domestically, and makes 50% of its sales in foreign markets.
