Wind turbine owners association grows

The Danish association of wind turbine owners, Danmarks Vindmølleforening (DV), is growing steadily. Last month 47 more members joined, pushing the overall membership number to 12,258. Since January 1, DV owners have registered 280 new turbines for a total capacity of 218 MW, the group says. This gives a DV member total of 3553 machines with a total installed capacity of 1206 MW -- more than half of the installations in the country. Since 1995 alone, about 4000 new members have joined the organisation and its installed capacity has quadrupled, says DV.
