Demand for renewable energy is being increasingly driven by industry, according to the latest Corporate Renewable Energy Index (CREX) from Bloomberg New Energy Finance ( and wind turbine manufacturer Vestas. The third annual CREX report shows that in 2011 net investment in renewable power capacity outpaced that of fossil fuel generation.

For CREX, Bloomberg says it collects renewable energy data from the world's largest organisations, and some innovative smaller companies. The CREX ranking is then based on renewable energy procured by respondents as a percentage of total electricity spend.

Meanwhile Vestas ( has launched its new V126-3.0MW turbine that uses a structured shell blade design. This, says Vestas, halves the capital investment in new production lines and improves flexibility in manufacturing.
