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

Maybe the winds will be as fierce as they are near the Straits of Magellan, or in some of New Zealand's wind canyons, where one wind farm has an average hub height (40 meters) wind speed of more than 11 meters/second, and its really rough on the Vestas V47 turbines.

That would be one of the three windfarms I can see from the end of my street.  But its not in a canyon - they're all on hilltops.

As for Russia, what's their policy framework like?  Do they do anything at all to encourage renewables, leave everything to the free market, settle it by bribery, or what?
