Denmark's installed wind power capacity has topped 1000 MW following the installation this year of 350 MW up to October. Wind energy now covers 7% of Danish electricity consumption, reports the industry's association. The 577 wind turbines installed over the past 12 months together produce one-third of Denmark's total wind generation. Ninety-three per cent of wind turbines in Denmark are privately owned and 7% are owned by utilities. Wind energy has cut Danish CO2 emissions by 3%, adds the association. By 2005, it expects that 2500 MW of wind turbines will be turning in Denmark, 750 MW of which will be offshore. By then, generation of electricity from the wind will have reduced Denmark's C02 emissions by more than one-third between 1988 and 2005. Denmark has made a commitment to reduce its emissions by 20% during that period. The country now has the fourth largest emissions of CO2 per inhabitant worldwide.
