Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"Okay, if I had the money, I would invest in a company that produced underfloor electric central heating because...electricity can be produced by windfarms.

And if you had the money, I would strongly recommend against it. Heating by electricity is very wasteful compared to using the electricity to drive a heatpump. For reasons of thermodynamics you get 3 times the heating if you use it to drive a heatpump (like a refrigerator but reversed). Electrical heating was installed in many swedish homes during the hey-day of the nuclear program and is today being replaced by heatpumps or a line to a central heating plant.
