Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Something similar (in this case using wind turbines to power the train network) was discussed here a year or so ago.

Given that I keep reading about supply of wind turbines lagging behind demand (I'm sure I read that a norwegian manufacturer has full order books to 2011, and that was a year ago), is there any reason why govts. (or private businesses) aren't rushing to build them?  Is it a tech. issue, a materials issue, a skills issue?  There must be something I'm missing.

Don't fight forces, use them R. Buckminster Fuller.
