|Looking through the news, a headline hit my eye:
"The European Union risks losing its leadership in wind energy without a clear policy vision for renewables towards 2030, the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) said today in response to China overtaking the EU in installed wind capacity in 2015."
China has made this great progress by PLANNING ECONOMY. The European ideology of prohibiting reasonable planning as "against the free market" has run into a dead-end road.
It is time to go back to a state-controlled planning of all energy matter. Also wind power needs a clear and foreseeable future, not the chaos of Liberalism.
The Caruna scandal has shown us clearly what happens if basic services as energy supply are in private hands: Our money goes to a tax paradise and as an excuse we get some non-binding promises of "great investments in future".
Wind power has no future in a liberalist economy. No qualified engineer will go into wind power when it is a lotto game to get or to lose his job. And without experienced experts, there will be no wind power companies.
Statement from the EWEA:
"Today Europe's wind industry has a 40% share of the global wind market and the best technology....
Otherwise it'll be China and others that capture the rapidly growing global market...
this would hurt us economically. Dickson said (CEO of EWEA)."
Yes, he is right. But they deserve it. Europe is not only loosing the leadership in the amount of manufactured and exported wind turbines. They also lose the know-how. Already now lots of European wind power experts emigrate or work years-long contracts in Asia. Like me.
