Things are not going well for the wind turbine industry in Northern Germany. Last year, only 56 new wind installations received permits, while the 2016 figure was for 285 installations.

While fewer new permits are issued, 96 old turbines have been taken out of operations. For the first time in six years, fewer new turbines were installed in 2017 than unused turbines were phased out.
