WindEurope: Tenders can drive speculative price reductions

Competition will be sharpened when it comes to selecting a wind turbine supplier via tender, says a wind lobbyist.

Access to tender-based systems for European turbines will become a driving force for major cost reductions, says Giles Dickson, the head of European wind association WindEurope.

"Tenders create a competitive environment which are a driving force for cost reductions, and we saw that remarkably in offshore last year, in particular in the Netherlands and Denmark. We expect that we will see something similar in onshore wind in Europe this year," says Dickson from WindEurope in relation to a wind turbine conference in Anaheim, California, to Ritzau Finans.
