OUR STRATEGY FOR WIND
For more than 30 years, Vestas has operated in the field of wind power. During the first quarter of 2012 Vestas passed 50 GW of installed capacity, thereby consolidating its position as the world’s leading manufacturer of wind power solutions. Having installations in 69 countries, Vestas is by far the most global wind turbine manufacturer.
In the years ahead, when wind will come to represent a growing proportion of the combined energy supply, Vestas must consolidate its position as the leading brand in renewable energy in a market characterised by ever-growing competition. All the prerequisites for continuing growth are in place, because wind power is:
1. Financially competitive:
The price of fossil fuels is expected to rise relative to the price of wind power in the future.
Over time, the volume of wind is stable, and wind will always be free.
Wind power is generated and controlled locally.
Compared with coal, gas and nuclear power plants, wind power plants can be built over a short period of time.
Wind turbines generate power without emitting CO2, NOX and SOX and without consuming any water.
