Some people think China will dominate production of machinery for developing solar and wind energy.
Reuters has a recent article on “China’s Green Tech Revolution,” which points out that
China already has over 50 percent of the global market for solar panels. Its companies are now looking to export their wind turbines.
Chinese companies have contributed to a rough decline of 40 percent in global solar energy prices.
It all remains to be seen, and, as I’ve discussed previously, development of significant solar and wind energy sources will depend upon improving energy storage.
