More super windmills to achieve renewable energy objectives

Last updated by

The province of Utrecht needs a large numbers of super windmills along the Amsterdam-Rhine Canal and public motorways. The recommendation was published by spatial quality adviser Ingeborg Thoral in the report “Energy Landscapes” on Monday.

Ingeborg warns that the transition to renewable energy is inevitable and that it will have a big influence on the landscape. Super windmills can be up to 150 meters high.

Utrecht wants at least 10% of its energy production to come from renewable sources by 2020. To reach that goal, some 65.5 megawatts of wind power must achieved and that equals to at least 12 super windmills.

Utrecht is anxious about placing too many windmills around the province and thereby resembling the province of Flevoland which has 597 windmills currently erected.
