China's Progress Crushed the U.S. in 2013

Source: Wikipedia.

According to Ernst & Young, China is closing in on the United States as the most "attractive" country with regard to renewable energy. By installing more than 12 gigawatts of photovoltaic capacity and focusing similar efforts on wind power, China made great strides last year. One area that the United States took a drastic step back in was, in fact, wind power. That could mean trouble for companies such as General Electric (NYSE: GE  ) and Siemens AG (NASDAQOTH: SIEGY  ) if it continues. However, looking at GE's fourth-quarter report, it appears that demand for wind solutions is still strong within the United States.
