Netherlands To Install 6 GW Wind Capacity By 2020
The Dutch government decided to accelerate the application of windenergy from currently 2 GW to 6 GW by 2020. Most turbines will be located in Flevoland and coastal regions, mostly Groningen and Zuid-Holland. 16% of the electricityproduction should be renewable in 2020. The current capacity of 2 GW is realized by ca. 2000 turbines.
