Abstract [en]

China has inrecent decades expanded its wind power generation capacity and become the world leader.Still,despite robust government support, wind power in China is obstructed by various barriers (e.g. quality deficiencies, inability to export, missing grid connections, and permitdelays from central government for grid constructionetc.). This paper synthesisesthe literature that hasdiscovered weaknesses in the Chinese wind power developmentand suggestsimprovements. One energy policy relevant observationisthat when the Chinese government setscommand-and-control construction targetsovernew installed capacity,actorsdelivered to target–but with severalpower plants without grid connectivity and severe quality problems. The article contributes to the academic debate over the role of policy making in renewable energy development and argues that China should improve theirincentive structure and coordination of regulations.
