Denmark's Wind Power Industry

Report Buyer has added a new report which comprehensively analyses Denmark's booming wind power industry.

Analyzing the Wind Power Industry in Denmark explores the importance of wind power in today's world. The 100 page report looks at the basics of the wind energy industry, including economics, issues and barriers and highlights that wind power provided nearly 20 percent of the Denmark's electricity in 2007, a significantly higher proportion than in any other country.

The study finds that Denmark was a pioneer in developing commercial wind power during the 1970s and today almost half of the wind turbines around the world are produced by Danish manufacturers.

Authors of the report say that Denmark has relatively modest average wind speeds in the range of 4.9 to 5.6 meters per second measured at 10 m height. Onshore wind resources are highest in the Western part of the country, and on the Eastern islands with coastlines facing South or West.

They point out that the country has very large offshore wind resources, and large areas of sea territory with a shallow water depth of 5 to 15 m, where siting is practical. These sites offer higher wind speeds, in the range of roughly 8.5 to 9 m/s at 50 m height.

Analysts find that there have been no major problems from wind variability, although there is a temporary difficulty resulting from the connection of a large bloc of wind power from offshore wind farms to a single point on a weak section of the transmission network.

The study provides an overview of the market and an analysis of the companies operating in the industry. It outlines the regulatory framework in place, developments in the market, challenges facing the industry and technological developments in turbines. It also contains a complete profile of the Danish Offshore Wind Energy industry.
