United States

A symbol of sovereignty

To judge by the mood of last month's US wind conference, the American industry is more relieved than stunned by the demise of Kenetech Windpower. Clearly eager to get down to business, industry members enthusiastically discussed the potential of hitherto unexplored markets for relatively smaller projects. One such market is that of the sovereign lands of Native Americans. More than one tribe is eager to not only utilise, but also trade its vast wind resource. And with control over siting regulations on their lands, as well as access to tax-exempt financing, Native Americans see few stumbling blocks in the way of wind development.
