Denmark to Go through with Near-shore Wind Farms

Denmark's right-wing minority government bowed to pressure from opposition parties and approved plans to build two near-shore wind farms, despite its earlier objections it said on Thursday.

 
After granting building rights for the wind farms to Swedish wind farm developer Vattenfall in September, the Danish government then announced its intention to cancel the projects, as it argued subsidy costs for renewable energy had become too high.
 
It reversed its decision following budget discussions with the country's other parties.
