Danish companies and research institutions want cheaper energy from wind.
A consortium of 16 Danish companies and research institutes joined forces with the aim of reducing the generation of electricity from wind power at a price of 70 euros / MWh to the year 2030.
The consortium called GROW intends to bring market innovations, and make it Delft Offshore Turbine, Deltares, ECN, Eneco, Lagerwey, LM Wind Power, Royal IHC, RWE, Seaway Heavy Lifting, Shell, Sif, TenneT, TNO, TU Delft, Van Oord and Volker Stevin International. The plan that they develop will cost more than 100 million euros should be spent in the five-year research, development and pilot projects, and the first projects should be started this fall, reports EMP.
The continuation of this project FLOW dealing with just the energy from offshore wind farms, through which it was concluded that the 40 percent reduction in costs could be achieved over a period of ten years, and offshore wind farms 10 to 15 years could work without support. Recently was completed a tender for a new offshore wind farms that should produce at a price of 12.4 cents / kWh, which was the most prominent in the tender.
