BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - The west coast of Britain may soon be dotted with
offshore fields of swirling wind power stations if Denmark's environmental
minister and a growing European environmental lobby has its way. The world's
fledgling wind power industry, experiencing explosive 25% annual growth rates,
now hopes to provide around one-tenth of global electricity needs by 2017. And
Britain's gusty sea coast provides just the terrain new wind stations require,
Danish Environment Minister Svend Auken said at U.N. climate talks Wednesday.
Denmark currently captures some 8% of its electricity from the wind.
