[Kenyan court rules that a giant Danish wind farm in the area of ​​indigenous peoples is illegal.] Kenyansk domstol slår fast at en gigantisk dansk vindpark i urfolks område er ulovlig. – Jeg syns det er veldig gledelig å høre at et slikt vindkraftanlegg og industriprosjekt er kjent ugyldig. Det er bra at domstolen påpeker at urfolkene i Kenya ikke har fått uttale seg i denne prosessen. Det sier sametingsråd Maja Kristine Jåma (NSR) til NRK. 28-åringen har gjennom hele . . .

Denmark needs more wind, solar to hit emissions target, lobby says

Denmark risks falling short of its 2030 climate targets unless it builds far more wind and solar farms and overcomes bureaucracy and local resistance to turbines, lobby group WindDenmark said on Tuesday. Home to wind pioneers Orsted (ORSTED.CO) and Vestas (VWS.CO), Denmark is viewed as a front-runner in combating climate change and plans a 70% cut to its greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 versus 1990 levels. But in a new study WindDenmark has found the country will need three to . . . Complete story »

Udtjente vindmøllevinger hober sig op på lossepladser – og der vil kun komme flere i fremtiden

[Obsolete wind turbine blades pile up in landfills – and there will only be more in the future] På Lolland går Kenneth Prehn rundt på en decideret kirkegård for vindmøllevinger. Han er kommunikationskonsulent for renovationsselskabet REFA, der står for affaldshåndteringen på Lolland-Falster. Et enkelt sted stikker enderne af tre hvide vinger stadig op ad jorden. – Det er sådan en lille landmandsmølle, der kom for cirka en måned siden. Og nedenunder den ligger der godt og vel 250 ton mølleskrot. . . . Complete story »

Lightning strike blade damages push Vestas into fresh quarterly loss

Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas has posted another quarterly loss, due to extraordinary warranty on a “considerable number of blades”, and re-introduced a guidance for all of 2020, expecting a lower profitability than seen earlier this year. Earnings before interest and taxes (Ebit) and special items plunged to €34m ($40m), from €128m in the second quarter of 2019. The decrease was driven by increased cost levels derived from warranty provisions as well as logistical challenges and supply-chain bottlenecks, amplified by . . . Complete story »

As wind power grows in Europe, so does resistance from locals

Sweden—the country that brought the world 17-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg—is aiming to zero out greenhouse gases by 2045. To reach that goal, it’s ramping up wind energy. The country expects to install 1.8 gigawatts of capacity of wind power this year alone, enough to charge more than 16,000 Nissan LEAF electric cars. At Ripfjallet, in the forests near Malung in western Sweden, German wind developer WPD AG has plans to build as many as 30 wind turbines that would . . . Complete story »

Denmark plans to create energy islands in Baltic and North Sea

Denmark on Wednesday proposed a more than tripling of its offshore wind capacity by building two energy islands linked to new wind farms in the Baltic and North seas to help to meet climate change targets. The energy islands are an important part of the Social Democratic government’s climate action plan which was presented on Wednesday but still needs to be ratified in parliament. Climate and Energy Minister Dan Jorgensen said the cost would amount to a three-digit billion crowns . . . Complete story »
