Lego Invests $532 Million in Wind Energy

Although the group has factories in Denmark, Mexico, the Czech Republic and Hungary, the power will go into the German grid and will be assimilated into the general power supply. Lego is not entirely interested in generating wind energy for its own use according to its spokesperson. They instead want to make sure that they support renewable energy suppliers. DONG Energy is the world’s leader in offshore wind farms . They have 1.3 GW of capacity in operation and about 1.1 GW under construction. They have brought financial investors into two wind projects each in Denmark and the UK.
