Once again, administrative delays have pushed back the new pricing system for wind power in Denmark -- this time to March 1, according to the Danish Energy Agency's Inga Thorup Madsen. The introduction of the system was otherwise due at the start of December (Windpower Monthly, October 2000), but has been delayed twice previously. When it begins, older turbines will no longer receive subsidies while newer installations will continue to receive them for a limited period only, depending on when they reach their allotted number of hours of operation at full load. The new pricing system will include a transitional arrangement while Denmark awaits a green certificate market.
