In a move to enhance oversight of the wind sector, the Inner Mongolia Development and Reform Commission recently released a set of new regulations concerning the management of wind resources in the region . According to the rules, wind power firms must have net assets of no less than RMB1 billion (approx. US$150 million). Local governments, which had previously supported the linking of wind power development with equipment manufacturing, will now require such relationships to be at arm's length, forcing wind power equipment manufacturers to sink or swim on their own.
