This sector is moving very quickly, the show’s organisers report. A forecast by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), for example, expects worldwide installed wind power capacity to increase by about 64% by 2021. The market with the strongest growth right now is Denmark (40%), followed by Uruguay, Portugal and Ireland with well over 20% each. Growth in Germany is at 16%. These figures make wind energy one of the major growth industries for the use of carbon and glass fibre composites.
