DENMARK'S DOMESTIC MARKET FAILING

The wind business is nowhere near as brisk at home as it is abroad. Just 15 turbines, less than 6 MW, have been sold on the domestic market since January -- about the same level of sales as in 1993, Denmark's worst year for wind development in a decade. In the absence of a healthy private market, only utility orders can now rescue the domestic market this year, says the association's Søren Krohn. Falling electricity prices and therefore falling rates of pay for wind power (rates are set at 85% of the consumer price of electricity) have pulled the rug from under the wind market in Denmark which is also waiting for the completion of regional zoning plans for wind turbine siting.
