PM: Put wind turbines in conservation area

Lars Løkke Rasmussen has not endeared himself to opposition parties in his first year as prime minister, but his most recent move may alienate him from his allies too. Rasmussen has proposed that a giant wind turbine test centre should be placed within the boundaries of the protected nature area of Østerild Plantage outside the northwest Jutland town of Thy.

Rasmussen has proposed that a giant wind turbine test centre should be placed within the boundaries of the protected nature area of Østerild Plantage outside the northwest Jutland town of Thy.

The Liberal prime minister has argued that the opposition parties in parliament have pushed for more wind power and his proposal accommodates that demand.

After many objections to the centre's placement within Østerild Plantage, environment minister Karen Ellemann said she would call in an expert committee to review the proposal. If the proposed placement is deemed unwise then Ellemann said other options would be considered.
