Denmark registered a record year for wind turbine sales in 1995, both at home and abroad. Exports doubled yet again during the year, with 479 MW leaving the country, made up of 1346 complete wind turbines and 622 component sets, mainly for assembly in India, reports the Danish wind industry's association. Total export in 1994 was 316 MW and in 1993, 181 MW. In Denmark, 98 MW went in the ground last year, made up of 199 wind turbines. Just over 60 MW was erected by the private sector, with 47.4 MW erected by utilities. The utilities, several years behind schedule, have now fulfilled their first agreements with government to erect 200 MW of wind power. Energy minister Svend Auken has now announced a new requirement for 200 MW of wind plant to be constructed by utilities, to be completed by 2005.
