Denmark's wind power investment may fail to benefit the environment, according to warnings from warns chairman of “The Økonomisk Advice” Hans Jorgen Whitten-Jacobsen.
Wind power is pitted to provide half of Denmark's electricity in 2020, a move that costs the equivalent of Skr49 billion.
But only if the conversion gives cheaper electricity it’s not sensible, says Whitten-Jacobsen according to the Danish business daily, Børsen. But all this in the carbon-free energy can reduce the price of C02 quotas, which can be left to increased electricity production in other coal plants.
