Dena looks to the future of German wind

May 2005
Modern Power Systems;May2005, Vol. 25 Issue 4, p35
The article focuses on the Deutsche Energie-Agentur (dena) grid study report. The report has been used to justify both optimism and pessimism about the future expansion of wind power in Germany. The dena studs envisages wind capacity of 26.2 GW onshore and 9.8 GW offshore. The onshore and offshore wind power developmental scenarios have been drafted under the assumption of largely positive political and economic climate. According to dena its study shows that the present German government's ambitious goal for development of renewable's envisaging 20% renewable's (predominantly wind) between 2015 and 2020 - is basically feasible. INSETS: The dena study--main conclusions at a glance;Background to the dena grid integration study;Looking beyond 2015.
