The economic significance of the wind energy sector
Study commissioned by the German Wind Energy Association (BWE e.V.) on the economic significance of the wind energy sector for Germany in 2012
The starting points of the analysis are, on the one hand, the investments in new onshore wind turbines (WTGs) and, on the other hand, the effects that arise from the operation of existing onshore wind turbines. The effects on gross value added and thus on economic output in Germany are calculated. In addition, based on this, the employment effects and the effects on public revenues are also modelled and analysed by the companies in the wind power sector.
