Sir, I was astounded to see the figures quoted in the article on Aarsleff Pilings operations in regard to Denmark's and Germany's power demands (Piling, October 6). Aarsleff's managing director said 30 per cent of electrical demand in Denmark would be met by wind energy.
This is twice the actual figure for Denmark and wildly more than for Germany. I have the data to prove it. I am convinced that this type of electricity generation has absolutely no environmental benefits and will not result in scaling back conventional generation plants, because they will have to be on stand-by anyway. The Government is very unwisely throwing money, ou r money, a t these machines.
