Initial reports are showing that in 2010 China lead the world with installed wind capacity. The US company, American Superconducter, estimated that there was 16,000 megawatts of new capacity added last year in China. The US ranked second with about 5,000 megawatts of capacity coming online.

This is the second year in a row where China has lead the world in new wind installations. In 2009 there were 13,000 megawatts of new installation in China and 10,000 megawatts in the US. China has 40,000 megawatts of capacity and this should eclipse total capacity in the US. Germany, Spain and India round out the top 5.
