Many European countries are repowering (replacing older turbines with much larger newer turbines to gain more power production from Europe’s relatively scarce wind lands) their wind turbine population, and that’s good news for US businesses and organizations that are looking for an affordable means of incorporating renewable energy into their total energy budget. These smaller turbines (rated in hundreds of kilowatts) that provided countries like Denmark and The Netherlands with cost effective energy for one or two decades are being replaced with megawatt scale (now 2 to 3 megawatt) turbines. In short, to get more renewable energy to meet their energy demands, European countries are going up (in height) rather than using more acreage. The older turbines, the ones being taking down, still have the potential of producing significant energy once they are refurbished. And of course we all know the European penchant for taking care of their machinery, which means these turbines have been very well maintained.
