The report shows how China, already the world’s largest wind market, could reach 1,000
GW of wind power by the middle of the century, an achievement that would reduce carbon
dioxide emissions by 1.5 gigatonnes per year, or roughly equivalent to the combined
CO2 emissions of Germany, France and Italy in 2009. The China Wind Energy Roadmap
is the first national roadmap that has been developed by a country with IEA support,
drawing from its global roadmap series.
