Corruption and little production



Corruption and little production

Denmark, the flagship for wind power, has shown some cracks in its energy portfolio.  First, it became evident that wind power is too variable or non-productive.  Denmark has an installed capacity of 20% wind power, but it frequently meets as low as 5% of their energy needs, and produces on average not more than 9% of their energy needs (see this study for details).http://www.thingsworsethannuclearpower.com/2012/12/corruption-and-little-production.html
