Prof. He Dexin, WWEA President: "It is with great pleasure that I express welcome to the new platform of WWEA, the Quarterly Bulletin, which come into reality by the joint efforts of several continents. The initiative for the Quarterly Bulletin came from WWEC 2011, at which some wise minds expressed their wishes to build a closer bond between WWEA members as well as promote WWEA’s mission in a more extensive way. We do hope this bulletin function as an important means of exchange of information and ideas in the world of wind energy."

Stefan Gsänger, WWEA Secretary General: "WWEA with its today more than 500 members in more than 100 countries represents one of the broadest renewable energy networks of the world. Through our members, we have direct access to first hand information about wind energy utilization from all the major and also smaller wind power markets across the planet. We intend to make use of this vast information and make it better accessible for the readers of this bulletin."

This first edition of WWEA Quarterly Bulletin will be available for free and will present some of the most interesting trends and key developments of wind power:

- World market report: The overall size of the market for wind turbines set a new record in the year 2011, reaching 239 Gigawatt, enough to cover 3 % of the world’s electricity demand.

- Prospects of China’s and India’s wind market: The two largest countries of the world represent also two of the most dynamic wind markets. The experience from these two countries can inspire other countries how to develop national wind power strategies. Both countries also play a key role in the industrial development
of wind power utilization, including manufacturing

- The status of small wind in the world: For the first time, WWEA has gathered global statistics on the utilization of small wind turbines. Small wind represents a completely different segment of the wind power market, facing already tremendous growth and until the year 2020, a tenfold increase can be expected.

- Community power and local ownership models: Approaches to include local population in wind farm projects can not only ensure a high degree of social acceptance. It can also make sure that a substantial proportion of the economic benefits resulting from a wind farm stay in the region where the project is located. The WWEC2012 in Bonn (3-5 July 2012) will have a special focus on such approaches.

- The perspective of a new wind turbine manufacturer from a developing country: For WWEA, it has been a special commitment since its foundation to foster new markets, especially in the so-called developing countries. In this context, we are very proud to present the winner of the World Wind Energy Award 2011, SWEG from Egypt.
