3. A minor error in the calculation caused the capacity utilization to be too high for these turbines.

The error arose from inadvertently including both the sum of the energy production in 2018 and the monthly data.

I came across this error while calculating the overall capacity utilization of all the wind turbines built in that offshore oil and gas drilling hellhole, Denmark, because the calculation included recently constructed turbines. Those turbines seemed - until the correction - to have unusually high capacity utilization based on my review of this subject over the years.

Thus the capacity utilization of the 30 or more year old turbines is 14.12%, not 14.22%. The thirty or more year life time made the error insignificant for long lived turbines even though it was comparatively large for new turbines.

It's a trivial correction to the poor performance of this trivial form of energy which is largely window dressing for the unsustainable gas industry, an industry in which the Danes are very actively involved.
