Installation of Denmark's first zero-subsidy wind farm has begun. Domestic developer Hirtshals Havnefond has planned a project in partnership with Vestas featuring four wind turbines of the model V136-4.2 at the country's northern port of Hirtshals. The machines will start spinning on pure market conditions starting from the fourth quarter of this year. The project's only security is a three-year power purchase agreement (PPA) entered with energy trader EnergiDanmark.
The southern Scandinavian country thereby joins the growing club of countries capable of facilitating onshore wind farm without state subsidy – a tendency that, particularly in the last few years, has gained momentum in Nordic markets such as Finland and Sweden. And the Hirtshals project is also distinctive beyond breaking through the subsidy barrier.

Although much now depends on two forthcoming events: presentation of political strategy and allocation of EUDP money.
