Under efforts to reign in the runaway costs of Germany's shift to renewable energy, the government in Berlin is limiting the number of tenders for wind parks.
An offshore wind park in the North Sea is to be built without feed-in subsidies for the first time, in a sign that renewable energy is becoming more competitive. Both the environment and consumers are likely to benefit.
The UK is the current world leader in offshore wind capacity. But with the country heading for the EU exit door, can the renewable energy boom last?
Ireland's wind power potential is vast, and although wind now supplies more than a fifth of the country's electricity, the potential remains mostly untapped. Siemens Gamesa is striving to change that.
The Netherlands has opened the world's second largest offshore wind farm, with 150 turbines spinning in action in the North Sea, substantially reducing the country's carbon footprint and enhancing its energy security.
