Greentech Media CEO Scott Clavenna talks with Herman Trabish, GTM's editor covering the wind market, about what happened in 2012 and how the wind market will take shape in 2013.
It is the best of times and the worst of times for certain: the PTC is about to expire in the U.S., while Chinese suppliers saw profits erode by over 90 percent this year. In the meantime, wind markets are heating up in Mexico, Brazil, Eastern Europe and India. Offshore wind remains a wildcard in the U.S. and continues to flourish in Europe.
Regardless, 2013 will be rough one, characterized by transitions in every area of the market, from markets to suppliers and the continued development of innovative technologies to drive down costs and make wind competitive with fossil fuel around the world.
