With Wind Power, Norway Could Become "Europe's Battery"

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

From Reuters:

"Norway could become 'Europe's battery' by developing huge sea-based wind parks costing up to $44 billion by 2025, Norway's Oil and Energy Minister said on Monday."

"Norway's Energy Council, comprising business leaders and officials, said green exports could help the European Union reach a goal of getting 20 percent of its electricity by 2020 from renewable sources such as wind, solar, hydro or wave power."

This could be wonderful if the windmills are far enough offshore or restricted to certain regions of the coastline. . . but, if we're talking about ruining the fjord vistas, this is a terrible development. Let's hope for the former.
