Master Thesis, FS10 (9051)

Wind energy is occupying a prominent position among renewable energy sources and will gain in signi cance as governments worldwide strive to reduce the environmental footprint in the energy sector. European Union has set binding targets. The EU directive contains binding targets for all members states and sets the goal of 20% share of renewable energy by 2020. This translates to an excess of 33% of produced electricity coming from renewables [1]. More wind power capacity was installed in 2009 in Europe than any other electricity generating technology, overtaking traditional energy sources such as coal and gas. Wind power consisted 39% of all new capacity installed in 2009. Moreover, the wind power capacity installed by the end of 2009 will produce on average 4.8% of the European Energy demand. The European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) has revised the anticipated installed capacity by 2020 upwards to an ambitious 230GW (from the currently installed 76.152GW) that will meet 14-17% of total electricity demand
