    Scope & contentSummary Translation

    A technical report on the state of wind energy installations in Schleswig-Holstein in 1988, where the economic viability of wind energy is up for debate.

    The introductory section looks in detail at wind speed averages in the area, energy production, profitability, subsidies, regulations and emissions, and concludes that wind energy can be viable for individual businesses which require a relatively large amount of energy, as long as they are in a windy location. With subsidies wind energy can also be interesting for feeding into the grid. But it is essential to get independent advice before embarking on any such project.

    The second, longer, section, looks at 15 named wind power plants, listing their construction details and their results in 1988.
