The information of this wind-gauge is transmitted directly to the Plein in The Hague. At a large screen you can see 'live' that 854,096 households can be provided with wind energy, if at that moment one thousand wind turbines will be active at the North Sea. This way Greenpeace shows how much wind energy the Dutch government Balkenende blows away. Study by the Energieonderzoek Centrum Nederland shows that with the law MEP (Milieukwaliteit Elektriciteitsproductie - incentives policy for green energy), wind energy at sea is a profitable activity. The argument that wind parks at sea are economically unfeasible, isn't true anymore. The past years Denmark, Sweden and England have built wind parks at sea, but the Dutch government still has cold feet. 'Two years ago Greenpeace applied for a license at the location where they place a wind-gauge today. But by now Greenpeace, just like other parties that want wind parks at sea, must go to court to force the government to consider the authorisations. Unknown makes unpopular it seems, because licenses for a new oil or gas drilling at sea are provided within a month', states Greenpeace Climate & Energy campaigner Ruud van Leeuwen. The Dutch public can also call on Balkenende to invest in wind energy at sea. The information of the wind-gauge will be transmitted to several events and festivals this summer. Here visitors can make a photo with a cardboard Balkenende and they can make an appeal. All calls to Balkenende can be seen at www.greenpeace.nl/windopzee.
