Market Vectors Glbl Alter. Engy ETF Trst (GEX)

http://www.vaneck.com/index.cfm?cat=3192&cGroup=ETF&tkr=GEX&LN=3-02#

This table was in pdf and it wouldn't copy/paste, so i had to transpose it. I think most of it is right, but i apologize if i made any mistakes.
Some of the stocks have symbols that i'm not familiar with, but i think that it's because the symbols are written for the european market. If you can't find the tickers in caps try losing the first two or three letters (vestas is VWSYF.PK) or searching by name.

Here's some extra info that i found interesting.
UNITED STATES 31.1%
GERMANY 17.1%
DENMARK 14.7%
canada 13.4%

norway 7.1%

deviation.
