Steady market growth in 1999

Dutch wind energy continues on its course of steady, though unspectacular growth, with 45.9 MW of wind capacity added in 1999, bringing the national total to 409 MW. This was 7 MW more than achieved in 1998, but still a long way from the one time target of 1000 MW by 2000, or even the government's aim of 100 MW a year. Red tape and siting issues are the cause of the restricted growth, rather than lack of demand. Market stimulation policies driving demand for green power mean there are plenty of wind development projects in the pipeline, even though few are making it through the permitting process.
