Wind Turbine Economics

Abstract

When considering the negative effects of conventional fuels on the environment and their limited availability, or the safety questions associated with the use of nuclear energy, renewable energies must not be looked at from an economic point of view only. However, this does not mean that the utilisation of renewable energy sources makes sense ”at any price”. Exorbitant energy prices are not acceptable to industry or to the economy in general. Profitability from a business management point of view and profitability for the national economy are, however, two different aspects entirely.
