The project’s developers are saying it is creating uncertainty about the ability of the project to receive its permits to proceed. The project known as Aflandshage Vindmøllepark is proposed for the southern Øresund region near Copenhagen . . . Complete story »

Offshore wind farms can “steal” wind from each other

Offshore wind farms can reduce the availability of downstream wind resources of other farms by as much as 20 percent within 50 kilometres, due to so-called wake effects. This is shown by interdisciplinary research from the University of Bergen (UiB). “The incentive to develop an offshore wind farm can diminish with just a five percent reduction in capacity, based on economic considerations,” says PhD candidate Eirik Finserås at the Faculty of Law, University of Bergen (UiB). Finserås recently published the . . . Complete story »

Offshore wind farm projects on the rocks

Energistyrelsen, the Danish energy agency, has suspended 28 wind farm projects worth billions of kroner. Other energy projects have also been halted amongst fears that the ‘open door’ contract scheme is at odds with EU law. All of the projects come under the so-called ‘open door’ scheme. This permits a company to submit an unsolicited project proposal to a municipality, as opposed to the municipality holding a tender for the best company to do a particular project. “Energistyrelsen has suspended . . .

New Danish government may speed up green transition

The winner of Tuesday’s general election will try to accelerate Denmark’s green transition and possibly even raise the 2030 emissions reduction target, based on recent campaign statements. The Nordic nation already gets more than 50% of its electricity supply from wind turbines and has seen emissions drop more than 40% since 1990, mainly through replacing coal-fired power generation with wind, solar and biomass. But any government is bound by Denmark’s climate law to cut greenhouse emissions by 70% below 1990 . . . Complete story »
