9781138021112: Windpower Ownership in Sweden: Business models and motives

Windpower is a modular technology, and compared to most other power plants also rather small scale. Wind turbines are installed to the distribution grid, which is called distributed generation. Ownership and revenues can be distributed as well, using the right ownership models.

Several different ownership models, used in different countries, like windpower cooperatives, local limited companies, net-accounting models etc. are described. These models can be used to make windpower become community power, and/or consumer owned power, and produce power for these owners at cost price.

To wait for the international community to agree on international treaties to create a renewable energy system, takes too long. The climate disaster will inevitably happen. To speed up the transition to a renewable energy system, development has to come from below, from local communities, which can initiate and invest in windpower and other renewables. At the same time to get off from the oligopolistic electric power market and produce power at cost price is a good business.

About the Author:

Tore Wizelius is a writer who has authored eight books on windpower. He was a lecturer on windpower at Gotland University from 1998 to 2008 and is now working as a windpower project developer in Sweden.

Review:

'Anyone interested in a more democratic and sustainable energy future sooner or later looks to Scandinavia and the "community wind" models first developed there a quarter century ago. Though Denmark’s experience typically garners more attention, this book demonstrates that Sweden’s story is no less compelling: long before "crowdfunding" was all the rage, Swedes were experimenting with various windpower ownership models designed to facilitate investment in the fledgling wind industry. This book deftly describes how these models work, how they’ve evolved over time, and the challenges they face as the wind industry matures.' – Mark Bolinger, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA

'Windpower Ownership in Sweden: Business Models and Motives, the new book by Tore Wizelius helps English-speakers understand how Swedes have taken a sizable ownership of wind energy in spite of their government. In this, his book can serve as an inspiration to community wind advocates worldwide who face many of the same challenges faced in Sweden.' - Paul Gipe, Renewable Energy Industry Analyst
