The wind blows quite strongly over the relatively flat country of Denmark, and the Danes have a history of harvesting this energy.
Denmark supplies both technology and know how for wind generating energy throughout the world .
On the west coast of Denmark, in the region of Thy, one can find the village of Klitmoller.
it is paradise to wind, kite and board surfers
as well as to those hoping to catch some waves in kayaks.
Thy has 70% of its electricity generated by approximately 230 wind mills.
We passed 2 modern windmill factories during our travels, and marveled at the insides of the long pipes that support them!
In 1996, Thy became the world's leading producer in the field of windmill operations.
Today, the Island of Samso is completely energy sufficient and actually exports energy! Asked if bothered by the ubiquitous windmills, the Danes I inquired responded that the windmills had a positive presence.
They are making clean energy for Denmarkand inspire hope for more sustainable energy in the future!
