• This is an artificial island created when the bridge, to the right, was built from Sweden to Denmark. The bridge ends here and enters a tunnel under the expanse of water on the right.
  • These 20 turbines provide Copenhagen (pop: 1.7 million) with 3-4% of her energy.

The new wind park off the coast of Copenhagen in The Sound (Øresund) between Copenhagen and Sweden. Still under construction.

Nothing beats the beautiful sight of wind turbines and anybody who whines about them should be sent to live on a receding Alaskan glacier.

    I agree .... here in Canada we have a great spot for turbines off our Atlantic coast, but there's an inexplicable (to me) fight against them.

    Sweet! The Tehachapi Wind Farm is not to far from my home:

    www.tehachapicentral.com/community_wind001.html

    It is HUGE! Miles and miles of clean, sustainable power generation...

    Here in the US, rich folks are fighting to keep an off-shore wind farm from being built near the island of Martha's Vineyard, in Massachusetts. @*&%$! Looks as though you Copenhageners are more enlightened in this respect as well.

    Thanks for the link.
    Denmark is the world leader in wind technology and we get 25% of our power from wind, with the goal being 50% by 2015.

    Always great to see other wind farms around the world.

    Wonderful. There's nothing quite like an elegant white turbine.

    This reminds me, I never uploaded my shots of these awesome machines from January 2011.
