Abstract [en]

The amount of wind power in the world increases fast. The background for this development is improved technology, decreased costs for the units and an increased concern of the environmental problems of competing technologies such as fossil fuels. The amount of wind power is though not spread equally over the world, so in some areas there is a comparatively high concentration. The aim of this paper is to make an overview of some of these areas and shortly desccribe the consequences of the increase of wind power. The aim is also to try to draw some generic conclusions, in order to get some estimation about what will happen when the amount of wind power increases for other regions where wind power penetration is expected to reach high values in future.
