Greentech Media expects about 7GW worth of U.S. wind power installations to be made in 2011 - up from 5.2GW last year, though likely not enough to keep China from surpassing the U.S. in terms of installed capacity. The industry could see a major downturn in 2013, should Congress fail to extend a key tax credit. GE and Siemens (SI) have both invested heavily in their wind turbine businesses.
