by the head of RTE (the French network operator), which used to be nastily  opposed to wind power, and which was surprisingly positive.

Amongst tidbits:

  • Wind power is well diversified in France (3 different climate areas) and thus available wind production is actually quite stable over time;

  • wind kWh now pop up in the network all over the place, and actually help stabilise the network, by reducing the need to transport electricity around;

  • in addition, wind turbines are actually quite sophisticated machines and can provide frequency stabilisation all over the place even when they don't produce;
