In both Sweden and Denmark objectives for introducing more renewable energy including wind power production into the energy system have been drawn by the governments. In Denmark the objective is to increase the amount of renewable energy to 33% in 2020 and in Sweden the objective is 49% renewable
energy in 2020 (Danish Government, 2011), (Swedish Government, 2011).

The price of the electricity produced by wind turbines is one of the crucial factors if an increased amount of wind power production has to be implemented and it is therefore necessary to support the owners of the wind turbines economically. However, there is a difference between the form of support achieved in Sweden and in Denmark, which will be described below. Further to a description of organization and ownership, other framework conditions and key requirements for setting up wind turbines will be carried
out. The paper will only describe the conditions in Denmark and Sweden without making any comparisons.
