Wind Turbine Manufacturers

There is many wind turbine manufacturers popping up all over these days, and it is not a surprise at all to those already in the know. Wind energy is not going anywhere. The United Nations has pledged their goal to have at least 80% of energy to be derived from renewable energy sources by the year 2050. The only competitor for renewable energy has been nuclear energy. However, many countries such as Japan, Germany and Italy have already stopped producing energy from this often controversial energy source. They are actively pursing different renewable energy sources such as wind and solar energy. Even smaller countries like the UK are catching on and to date have installed wind farms and are projected to be running as many as sixty thousand wind turbines by the end of 2015.
