World Renewable Energy leaders announce China wind push
During four days of discussions in Beijing, Greenpeace, the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) and the Chinese Renewable Energy Industry Association (CREIA) have formed an historic partnership, committing themselves to ensuring that wind power plays a key role in China's energy future. Due to rapid economic growth, China has faced power shortages and a huge increase in energy imports in recent months. The groups pledged to assist China to "meet, if not exceed, the new Renewable Energy targets" it announced in Germany in June.
EWEA is the voice of the wind industry, actively promoting wind power in Europe and worldwide. It has over 600 members, which are active in over 50 countries, making EWEA the world's largest and most powerful wind energy network.
