It is not possible to lie to the people forever about whether wind turbines can compete on equal footing with other forms of energy when the reality is that wind power - for the first 40 years of development - and forever after, will require billions in direct and indirect support.
The Danish Minister of climate and energy, Lars Christian Lilleholt, is talking about creating peace on the energy agreement from 2012, but he's also discussing saving 5 billion Danish kroner in green taxes by dropping wind farms already agreed upon.

The Eurelectric analysis showed that without all of those excess costs, Danes would pay electricity costs under the European average. Lars Aagaard, the CEO of the Danish Energy Association (Dansk Energi) said the high level of taxation is strangling Denmark’s green conversion.
The two landowners and Wind Estate A / S, which wants to build three giant wind turbines west of Pederstrup do not think of neighbors and the health of local residents. It is about generating electricity from wind turbines, about money, and so it is also for those who are thinking about investing in the project to achieve a good profit. It's not about noise by neighbors and people's health.

“I think the criticism is over the top,” Lars Christian Lilleholt, Denmark’s energy minister, told the Politiken newspaper last month. He said the country still planned to invest 800 million krone, or $114 million, in green energy research in the coming year. “There is less money, but it is still a lot. And I sit in a government that must find a way for the Danish economy to make ends meet.”
A large turbine at a Samsø offshore windfarm was wrecked on Saturday, bringing electricity production at the site to a halt. For unknown reasons, the 100-metre-high turbine lost its top part and all of its wings, which then fell into the sea.
The 400-MW Anholt offshore wind farm is operational again after the replacement of two parts of the subsea cable connecting it to the grid was completed faster than expected.
The fur farmer, Kaj Bank Olesen, explains at a November 25, 2015 public meeting in Isenvad, Denmark, how an operating wind plant near his harm has caused devestating harm and destruction to his mink population. English subtitles by vind-alarm-danmark.eu. Video by Lars Fogh Iversen.
Two hours after midnight on October 19, the cable to Dong Energy’s 209-MW Horns Rev 2 offshore wind farm in Danish waters also went out of service due to an error. Energinet.dk has set November 25 as the tentative date for the repair.
The replacement of parts of the subsea cable connecting the 400-MW Anholt offshore wind farm to the Danish grid is expected to take place October 26 and November 23, if the weather permits.
Denmark’s widening budget deficit is forcing its policy makers to take some hard decisions in the very area where they are considered global role models: the fight against climate change.
The replacement of parts of the subsea cable for the 400-MW Anholt offshore wind farm in Danish waters will not commence at end-September, as was previously planned.
Saying that the previous government’s goal to reduce carbon emissions by 40 percent in 2020 compared to 1990 levels will be too expensive for Danish businesses, Climate Minister Lars Christian Lilleholt said on Wednesday that he will not push to meet the benchmark. Instead, Lilleholt said it is enough to stick to already-approved climate initiatives that the Danish Energy Agency (Energistyrelsen) estimates will result in a 37 percent carbon dioxide reduction.
In a growing spat that is undermining the European Union’s 150 billion euro ($160 billion) program to strengthen the bloc’s electricity links, leaders in Bavaria and other German regions are turning down wind power from the north. Their biggest objection is the aesthetics of it all: New transmission lines would have to be put up across centuries-old German towns to bring in more of the electricity.
The 400-MW Anholt offshore wind farm in Danish waters has restarted feeding electricity to the grid after shutting down a month ago because of a subsea cable fault.
