Industrial wind: a failure written in the European statistics  

Author:  | Denmark, Emissions, France, Germany, Spain

[from “Eolien industriel: un échec en filigrane dans les statistiques Européennes”]

Does large-scale development of industrial wind energy actually reduce the consumption of fossil fuels or emission of CO2?

Comparison of per-capita wind and thermal electricity production and CO2 emissions in Germany, Denmark, Spain, and France.

Germany – most industrial wind facilities in the world (18,400 MW in 2005) —
2005: 10.6 tonnes CO2 per capita, 6.4 tonnes from electricity
+190% per capita production from wind from 2000 to 2005
+9% per capita thermal electricity production from 2000 to 2005
+1% per capita CO2 from electricity 2000 to 2005

Denmark – highest percentage of industrial wind in the world (18% of production) —
2005: 9.3 tonnes CO2 per capita, 5.5 tonnes from electricity
+54% per capita production from wind from 2000 to 2005
−8% per capita thermal electricity production from 2000 to 2005
−11% per capita CO2 from electricity 2000 to 2005

Spain – second most industrial wind facilities in the world (10,000 MW in 2005) —
2005: 8.5 tonnes CO2 per capita, 3.8 tonnes from electricity
+317% per capita production from wind from 2000 to 2005
+41% per capita thermal electricity production from 2000 to 2005
+10% per capita CO2 from electricity 2000 to 2005

France – virtually no industrial wind (760 MW in 2005) —
2005: 6.6 tonnes CO2 per capita, 2.6 tonnes from electricity
+~0% per capita production from wind from 2000 to 2005
+19% per capita thermal electricity production from 2000 to 2005
−1% per capita CO2 from electricity 2000 to 2005
