A successful energy transition is unthinkable without wind energy. It provides the necessary tailwind for renewables. And it’s blowing hard. There has never been so much total capacity installed worldwide. The order books of manufacturers are well-filled, and the technology is mature. During the opening of the DanTysk wind farm, German economics minister Sigmar Gabriel emphasized that the technology had left its fledgling stage and was now industrializing. Valve manufacturers are playing their part in the energy turnaround, also in Germany.
