U.S. ranks 4th in wind energy manufacturing
The report ranks 25 countries based on the 2011 sales of the clean energy technology products they manufacture, such as wind turbines and solar panels.
Although the U.S. has a strong market share in wind technology, it is still in fourth place, with an 11% market share (a slight increase over last year's 9%), behind China, Germany and Denmark, who together represent more than 60% of the global market.
Despite a growth of 30% in U.S. demand for wind turbines, wind turbine manufacturing in the U.S. grew by only 17% in 2011.
