Breath of Fresh Air – E.ON Target Scandinavia with Wind Power Proposals

Domestic and commercial energy supplier E.ON has announced the next step in its long-term development plan to produce green energy for Europe, by extending its wind power generation facilities in Norway and Sweden.

E.ON’s proposals illustrate the German-based energy giant desire to build upon its wind power generation capacity in Norway and Sweden by hundreds of megawatts before the end of the decade.

Low development costs, sparser population density and – most importantly – high wind speeds have caught the eye of E.ON, where these factors mean they can create larger projects for less outlay than Germany, the UK and the rest of continental Europe.

“Norway has a huge untapped potential,” said Mark Porter, the northern Europe onshore wind power director. “It’s a new market that has many cost-efficient projects. We plan to complete a handful before 2020 though not all nine farms will make it.”
