German wind energy capacity expected to grow by 3 GW this year, more than total installed base in NL, to reach 34 GW:

Of a total of approximately 1,143 megawatts of newly installed capacity, about 1,038 megawatts were installed over land and 105 megawatts were installed offshore. The expansion of wind energy over land for the first half of 2013 roughly corresponds to last year’s level. This demonstrates that the expansion path is stable despite all skepticism. BWE President Sylvia Pilarsky-Grosch: “Expansion over land for the first half of the year is 80 megawatts, or about eight percent above the figure for the same period in 2012. Our prediction for the expansion of wind energy over land for 2013 totaling 2,700-2,900 megawatts is confirmed with this value. Fortunately, this growth is stable considering the directionless political debates in spring regarding amendments to the German Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG). While the general public and the industry are working hard to realize ...
