World perspective on wind power projects limitations
Preben Maegaard, President, World Wind Energy Association has this to say in the current issue of Wind-Tech magazine about developments worldwide:
Clearly combined renewable energy source strategies - wood fuel, wind, wave, hydroelectric - tailoring each based on their strengths - and avoiding deployments where they are unsuited - is the right approach.
Seems like the industry itself is beginning to acknowledge its own limits and talk about alternatives - and especially more community level solutions and dispersed, distributed power generation through use of smaller devices.
