Wind Turbines on Middelgrunden

In 2000 an offshore wind farm consisting of 20 units of 2 MW wind turbines was constructed near Copenhagen and it was, at that time the largest offshore wind farm in the world. Today this farm produces 89.000 MW/year covering about 3% of the electricity consumed by the city of Copenhagen. The ownership of the turbines has been divided into shares sold to the public in order to give the residents of Copenhagen the possibility of participating in a local and ecological energy supply system.
