We are building a low emission society

Wind power is the most climate-friendly form of energy and the one with the smallest ecological footprint. We contribute to electrifying the transportation sector and a low-emission society.

The future is electric

Energy efficiency improvement is the most cost-effective way to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. However, in order to reach the goals of the Paris Agreement, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the International Energy Agency (IEA) say that significant amounts of renewable energy will have to be produced. Both the IPCC and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) rank wind power as the technology solution that provides the best climate impact and the smallest ecological footprint of all the renewable and fossil ways of producing electric power.

The graph was developed in 2016 by the International Resource Panel on assignment by UNEP. The graph shows the advantages and disadvantages of the different technologies used to make electric power, including the whole life cycle of the technologies. The bigger the circle, the bigger the impact of the technology.

The wind industry should contribute more to local welfare

The governement have suggested increased taxes for the industry by implementation of a resource rent tax on wind power, an increased production fee and an extraordinary tax on the energy sold for a price that exceeds 70 øre per kWh.t, and a doubling of the production fee.
