The city of Amsterdam received the go-ahead to substantially increase the amount of wind energy generated in the municipality. The Dutch capital announced plans on Wednesday to add windmills generating an additional 50 megawatts of power by 2026.
The first urban windmill has been installed on the roof of the Stadshavens office in Rotterdam. The Liam F1 Urban Wind turbines are as tall as the average human, and their design are reminiscent of a nautilus. They can easily be placed on a roof or a façade.
Because tenant farming prices for land are disproportionately high, the construction of wind farms is too expensive. As a result, wind energy is more expensive than necessary.
