Energy giants say wind power is hot air 

The country’s energy companies are not convinced that wind power is the way of the future

Management at Denmark’s energy companies, Dong Energy and Vattenfall, do not subscribe to the current mindset that wind energy will be especially prominent in the future, reported national public broadcaster DR.

The companies believe that coal-powered electricity will still be the largest supplier of the nation’s energy, despite the trend toward environmentally-conscious sources.

‘Wind energy can’t solve the energy problem in the near future because it’s too unstable and possibly too expensive,’ said Anders Eldrup, chief executive of Dong.

The government nonetheless presented a new energy plan Friday which focused on making renewable energy sources comprise 30 percent of the nation’s total energy by 2025.

Marianne Grydegaard, Vattenfall’s head of communications, believes that the chance of any alternative energy source overtaking coal is unrealistic within the next 10 years.

‘Coal power is necessary in a transition period, and we’re working on lowering CO2 emissions as much as technically possible,’ she said.

Wind power currently covers 20 percent of the nation’s energy needs.
