75% of the wind turbines in Europe are sited in Germany, Denmark and Wales (UK). The rate of installation in the last three years suggests that European implementation continue until the end of the century at the rate of at least 500 MW per annum. Clearly, wind energy is one of Renewable Energy's major success stories and this study was initiated to attempt to identify the reasons for this success. By analysing the different conditions that have prevailed in the three European countries, the study seeks to identify the circumstances which need to be created to assist wind energy development in other countries and for other renewable Energy Technologies in order to accelerate their integration into the energy systems of Europe.
