The Danish wind turbine industry is one of the fastest growing sectors in Denmark, according to figures from the Danish Wind Industry Association. Today 21,000 people are employed in development, production and exports in wind turbine technology in Denmark, compared to 8,500 ten years ago. Danish wind turbine manufacturers collectively have a 40% share of the global market.

The wind turbine industry also relocates production to low wage areas, but two out of three companies in the industry still expect to create new jobs in Denmark over the next 12 months.

Denmark's expertise in wind energy attracts foreign companies to Denmark. In recent years Siemens has invested in wind turbine production in Brande, Jutland, through its acquisition of Bonus Energy, which at the time was Denmark's oldest wind turbine manufacturer and the world's fifth largest. The Indian producer Suzlon has placed its global head office in Aarhus, and Spain's Gamesa has set up a development department in Silkeborg. In addition, Denmark's Vestas Wind Systems is currently building a new R&D centre in Aarhus.

The news was reported by national daily newspaper Jyllands-Posten.
