New wind power installations in China have doubled every year since 2004. By 2010, China's wind generation capacity of 45 GW ranked first in the world. A total of 30 of 31 provinces, municipalities, and autonomous regions have wind farms. (This article does not discuss wind power development in Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan.) The Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region leads the other provinces with 14 GW of installed capacity, followed by Gansu, Hebei, and Liaoning. China was also the first country outside of Europe to have offshore wind farms. By the end of 2010, total Chinese offshore wind power capacity was approximately 150 MW.
