BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Investment in new European wind farms is likely to hold steady in 2010, adding a further 13 percent to capacity, but funding problems cloud the outlook, the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) said on Monday.

The group expects 10 gigawatts (GW) of new wind generating capacity to be installed in the European Union this year, compared with 10.2 GW last year, taking total capacity to around 85 GW.

"We predict another strong year for wind turbine installations in Europe," EWEA Chief Executive Christian Kjaer told reporters.
