The European Commission last month approved the proposed Danish electricity market reform, giving Denmark the right to put the law into force. This is expected to happen by summer. Danish politicians are still debating how to handle wind energy before a green power market is fully functioning (Windpower Monthly, February 2000). Investment in Danish wind has meanwhile halted. "The problem is that you're asking people to invest money for a wind turbine in a future payments system that doesn't yet exist," says Christian Kjær of the Danish wind industry association.
