Messe Husum held a moderated talk round to the future of wind energy in the framework of the HUSUM WindEnergy. Husum, September 20, 2012. Messe Husum held a moderated talk round to the future of wind energy in the framework of the HUSUM WindEnergy. Politicians, utilities and manufacturers from Germany, Denmark and China have discussed here the most important industry topics. Professor Dr. Jochen Twele, wind energy expert and Professor at the Hochschule fur Technik und Wirtschaft, Berlin ran through the discussion.
Excess wind power to heat the Danish Government wants to double the share of wind energy to 50 percent by 2020. Excess wind energy should in the future consumed by low-cost electric boilers”, said wind pioneer Preben Maegaard, Director of the Nordic Folkecenter for renewable energies in the context of the discussion. Wind power is thus at least at the same price to sell as saved fuel. So far, the producers had to their excess wind electricity often at poor prices on the electricity exchange sell or turn off their equipment. Because in Denmark every year, approximately 105 terawatt-hours are needed for heating, district heating system represents a large market, to include peak power renewable energy”, Maegaard said. With wind power, the euro crisis similar to stop it sees Hans-Josef fell, Member of the Bundestag and energy spokesman for Bundnis 90 / Die Grunen.
The euro crisis is an oil crisis. Oil, gas and coal imports of euro-zone countries are more expensive than the expansion of renewable energies, and the costs of fossil fuels.” While the wind energy in Germany was the most important drivers of renewable energy supply. The euro crisis shows that it is much more expensive, to stop the energy revolution. If you turn of the energy but, a full supply with renewables in Germany is possible already in 15 years.” 40,000 Km of new high-voltage lines create the Chinese power grid because of the rapid expansion of which met with wind energy 2011 at its borders.
