Wind power will provide around 50% of the energy needs of the Åland islands by 2020 under new plans drafted by the islands' government. At present, the island archipelago hosts four wind farms with a combined capacity of 36 MW. They supply 24% of its annual energy requirement. The government has already approved plans for up to 14, 2-3 MW wind turbines to be installed in 2009. "Our goal is for Åland to become self-sufficient as an energy producer," says Jan-Erik Matsson, the Åland government's industry commissioner. "A higher level of wind power capacity will allow us to achieve this key target."
