ABSTRACT
The article reports that wind farms in Denmark are owned by cooperatives which make the country the world champion of wind power. According to the article, Denmark has 3,136 megawatts of installed wind capacity, the highest per capita rate in the world. However, the Danish government's decision to reduce the subsidies for wind-generated electricity has stalled the growth of the wind energy industry.
