The Wind Farm Construction industry has enjoyed a period of accelerated growth since the late 2000s but has recently entered a stage of flux. The industry, which provides engineering, procurement and construction services for wind power generation projects, has been the principal beneficiary of government intervention to boost the use of renewable energy sources. The Renewable Energy Target (RET) has compelled electricity generators and retailers to increase the share of power generated from renewable sources such as wind, solar and tidal, with substantial encouragement to invest into large- scale wind generating capacity.
Firms in this industry construct wind farms, which are a collection of wind turbines in a particular area. These farms produce and sell electricity to utilities and other customers. Maintenance, repair and operation of wind farms are excluded from the industry's activities.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
