Germany aims to increase its production of wind power from 31,000 to 45,000 megawatts over the next seven years. By the middle of the century, it hopes to be generating 85,000 megawatts in wind power. This means 60,000 new wind turbines -- not only offshore, but also in forests, in the foothills of the Alps and even in protected environmental areas.
