Agreement reached on new wind turbine policy  

Credit:  13 December 2012 | www.dutchnews.nl ~~

National and provincial government have reached agreement on the locations for hundreds of new wind turbines, ending years of dispute, news agency ANP reports.

The bulk of the new wind parks and turbines will be located in Flevoland province, where strong winds are most prevalent, ANP said. Groningen and Zuid-Holland provinces will also take a large percentage of the new wind parks.

Between 4% and 5% of the Netherlands’ energy usage is currently derived from sustainable sources but the government wants to boost the total to 16% within the next seven years. Wind power is a central part of that policy.
