Wind Power, a rapidly growing energy source


Hans Bergström, researcher at the Department of Earth Sciences, develops wind energy for the future.

An energy revolution is under way. In Sweden and Western Europe both coal and old nuclear power are being abandoned. At the same time we need electricity. Hans Bergström and other researchers participate in a revolutionary development of new wind power, that can generate electricity even without wind.

At the same time Europe´s largest wind power park is being built with wind power stations higher than Kaknästornet (170 metres). When the wind power park is completed it will produce a as much electricity as a nuclear plant.
