    GERMAN WIND GREW 39% IN 2006 -- YES, 39%!

    Inside info for NewEnergyNews readers: Behind the headlines it would appear to be bad news that domestic sales (in Germany) were 29% of the industry’s activity in 2005 but only 26% in 2006 and dropped off 25% in the 1st 6 months of 2007. But this only APPEARS to be bad news because the truth is, according to sources at the AWEA WindPower Expo, this is simply the result of the German industry servicing international buyers first. The German companies (and most wind energy suppliers) are booking orders now from all over the world — for 2009! There is a tendency, because of strong domestic “feed-in tariffs” and RPSs from individual nations as well as the EU, to be confident domestic demand will not erode.
