Is Denmark World Leader in Wind Energy?

Wind turbines in Denmark

Fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal are believed to have been contributed to climate changes. Thus, we need to move to friendly energy sources, renewable energy.

Two prominent renewable energies are wind and sun. Denmark have chosen wind as energy solution with several reasons:
- wind available for 24 hours, not only in daylight
- less pollution
- more efficient
- produce more energy

In term of wind power generator per capita (MWH per person), top 10 countries are:
- Denmark, 2.29 MWH per person
- Germany, 1.44
- Ireland, 1.34
- Spain, 1.30
- Canada, 0.85
- USA, 056
- United Kingdom, 0.57
- France, 0.40
- Italy, 0.38
- China, 0.26

Denmark is clearly pioneer and leader in using and acquiring the cutting edge technology of wind energy in the world.

Technology progress through the years, now, we aware that renewable energy is more effective than fossil fuel energy in term of cost.

If we compare wind to solar energies, wind power is cheaper than solar energy. Wind power cost around US$ 45 per megawatt hour, while solar energy cost US$ 48 per megawatt hour.

Cost will be reduced in coming years due to invention in wind turbine technology and storing energy capacity.

USA promoted renewable resources energy, especially in the state of California. If we buy a brand new house, the property owners will offer us solar panels for electricity.

Did your state or country start to use wind or solar energy sources?

  1. I would love to see more wind produced energy here in the US. I was surprised by the pricey contracts for solar panels when house hunting. However I would love to have a solar panel set up that is not on the roof that can be purchased outright without a contract.

  7. Well done, Denmark!We use both solar & wind in the UK, and more wind turbines are appearing but, as you say, it is a very small percentage of the power produced.

  20. We have many windfarms in Canada. I am always torn between my desire for clean energy and the effects these structures have on birds and bats.

    1. I see.....effect might be like aero planes, birds will adapt to present of wind mills over time....

  21. I remember a flight from Copenhagen to Edinburgh, eight years ago, and seeing wind mills offshore. There were so many, but I am amazed they have that much more power as the plains of the US have really added a lot of wind mills.
