Preface of Wind Power Plants Second Edition by Robert Gasch


In 1991, when we sent our manuscript of the first German edition „Wind Power Plants“ to the publishing house, our lecturer Dr. Schlemmbach was asked by his colleagues “Do you think, anyone will buy and read this Wind Power Plants Second Edition by Robert Gasch book ?” It lasted only one year until we had to prepare the second edition.

The reason for this unexpected success was the first “feed-in act” that had passed the German parliament in 1991.

Everybody was now allowed to produce electricity from renewable energies and to feed it into the grid for a fixed price guaranteed over twenty years. (Wind Power Plants Second Edition by Robert Gasch)

This political decision initiated the boom of the German wind energy industry - similar to the Danish political decision ten years before.


In 1991 most of the authors were members of a research group at the Technical University of Berlin, students, research fellows, postgraduate students, and postdocs.

Now many of them hold prominent positions in the wind energy industry.

This has let to a tightly knit professional network, that helps to keep the Wind Power Plants Second Edition by Robert Gasch book up-to-date
