PV outpaces Wind, in other news, River Styx very cold September 27, 2013

I’m not normally one for the blogroll, but I thought this little news tidbit was worth pointing out – PV is on track to install more new generation than wind for the first time.

According to Bloomberg, they’re expecting 36.7GW of PV, 33.8GW of onshore wind, and 1.7GW of offshore wind for 2013.

At least some of this is due to the massive upswing in PV in Japan, while at the same time we’re in a low point in wind due to the permanent boom-and-bust cycle in US wind installations, and a surprising uncertainty in China’s normally robust wind pipeline.

This is expected to reverse again as new builds come into the pipeline, but it’s an interesting point in history anyway.
