Ma De, President of Siemens: the Chinese market is very important to achieve the goal of wind power
"In terms of global market share, we are the first in the offshore wind power field, and we are currently the sixth in the onshore wind power equipment market, with a market share of about 8%. Siemens wind power's strategic goal is to become the world's top three wind power equipment manufacturers by 2012. If we achieve this goal, we will certainly get our market share in the Chinese market."
recently, on the occasion of the third 2011-2018 Beijing International Wind Energy Conference, Ma De, President of Siemens' Northeast Asia energy business, strongly expressed Siemens' ambition and appetite for China's wind energy market in an interview. He believes that China will soon become the largest wind energy market in the world. Having a place in the Chinese market will enhance Siemens' global leading position in this field
China's market choice under the global strategy
wind power is an important part of Siemens' environmental protection related business portfolio. In 2004, Siemens acquired Danish bonus company, which has entered the wind power market and continuously expanded its production capacity. This month, Siemens just received orders for six new wind turbines from North America, with a total installed capacity of more than 565 MW and a total contract value of more than 600million euros. In fact, Siemens' appetite and ambition for China's wind power market is precisely Siemens' slightly selected obvious tightening experiment for its future development in the field of environmental protection without causing 'white pollution'. It is an experimental method often used to study the properties of materials. In 2008, the operating revenue of Siemens' business portfolio related to environmental protection was about 19 billion euros, accounting for 1/4 of Siemens' total annual revenue. It is against this background that Siemens' market planning in the field of environmental protection in China also highlights its great efforts
in 2008, Siemens China announced that 50% of its medium-term investment plan of 10billion yuan in the Chinese market formulated in 2006 was invested in environmental conditions related to energy conservation and environmental protection: Technologies and solutions. At the beginning of this year, Siemens announced an additional investment of 1.35 billion yuan on the basis of the medium-term investment of 10 billion yuan to expand renewable energy production capacity in the next three years. Siemens hopes that by the end of 2010, the business portfolio related to environmental protection will account for 40% of all orders in China. The prediction of China's wind energy market is the most important part of Siemens' series of plans. In recent years, China's wind power market has achieved rapid development. As of 2008, China's installed capacity of wind power has reached 12.21 GW, accounting for 10% of the world's total, ranking fourth in the world. It is estimated that by 2015, the annual growth rate of China's wind power installed capacity will be as high as about 30%
