In three years’ time, every second wind turbine in Region Zealand will have reached the end of its 20-year working life, and new, larger ones will be built in their place, reports DR.

Today, some 26 percent of the total energy production in the region is generated from renewable sources, but Zealand has an ambition to increase this to 40 percent by 2020.

It hurts the soul

Not all locals are happy with the plans.

“My main concern is their location,” Marie Aarestrup Nielsen from Guldborgsund in Falster Municipality told DR.

“It hurts my soul. The turbines will destroy a unique natural area.”

Locals can get involved

Energy Cluster Centre Zealand, which co-operates with municipalities in the region, ensures local citizens will be involved early on in the process.

According to Henrik Teglgaard Lund, the CEO of Energy Cluster Centre Zealand, the turbines should support local development and generate income for locals.

The company is currenly working with the municipalities of Kalundborg, Holbæk, Køge and Odsherred on various projects.
