Viridian Note 00240: News from Europe

“Today, more than 5,600 windmills dot the Scandinavian nation, producing about 10 percent of Denmark’s electricity. In 2030, half of Denmark’s energy should come from windmills, according to the government. (…)

“Last year, Denmark exported windmills to key markets including the United States, Germany, Britain, India and China. Its sales have increased sixfold in the last five years, amounting to $1.5 billion in 1999, according to the industry association.

“Middelgrunden will retain its position as the world’s largest offshore park for at least a year.

“Two bigger seaside parks are expected to open in Denmark next year, and more are planned off Sweden and the Netherlands, some producing as much as 160 megawatts == four times the size of the Middelgrunden.”
