China’s wind installations saw their biggest drop in a decade in the first half of 2020 with solar additions also plunging amid the coronavirus pandemic, power industry data from the country’s National Energy Administration (NEA) shows.

Wind capacity connected to the grid in the first six months dropped 30.5% year-on-year (YoY) to 6.32GW, according to the energy regulator.

The steep fall means that the world’s largest wind market registered its first decline in new capacity for four years.
