the wind turbine market for wind turbines


1.1 Definition and scope of study

Wind turbines appeared several centuries ago as a form of tools for draining or irrigating wet or dry areas . It was not until the 1950s that the first wind turbines producing electricity appeared. Using blades, a rotor, a nacelle and a mast, the wind is converted into electricity. A wind turbine allows you to supply an average of 1,150 households as defined in Switzerland Wind Energy .

A wind turbine corresponds to the visible structure of the wind turbine except for the mast. The aim for manufacturers is to design blades that convert as much wind energy as possible into electricity. The role of manufacturers does not stop at the design stage, as they realize , install and dismantle the wind turbines they design.

While renewable energies are becoming a real political and economic challenge, wind energy is a potential alternative to fossil fuels. The number of installations is increasing on the territory, especially since some of them targets have been set for 2023 and 2028  via the multiannual energy programmes

However, there are still many challenges for the sector. The profitability of turbiners remains very low and the emergence of new trends, such as smart grids could encourage the emergence of new players in a highly concentrated sector.
