ABSTRACT
The article reports on the statement by Shi Pengfei, vice-president of the Chinese wind energy association, regarding the poor planning system of China's wind power energy. According to Pengfei, due to local governments who were keen to jump on the renewable energy bandwagon, they were approving new wind farms without proper planning. He adds that more wind power more trouble for the grid.
