The high peaks of the Norwegian landscape make an almost ideal site to install onshore wind turbines. This is becoming increasingly apparent to Norwegians, who have taken critical steps toward several major onshore wind farms over the past year.

The largest is the 1 GW Fosen project, which will be equipped with Vestas turbines for an investment of approximately DKK 8.2 billion (EUR 1.1 billion) all inclusive. Measured per MW, the project will thus be 40 percent cheaper than Europe's hitherto largest wind farm, the Romanian farm Fantanele Cogealac from 2008.
