Local councils research small turbines

Four Dutch municipalities are looking to place seven wind turbines in their regions by the summer in a bid to gain more experience of operating smaller wind turbines. Two turbines will be sited in 's-Hertogenbosch, Eindhoven and Tilburg and one in Boxtel, next to existing units. The aim of the initiative is to learn about the legal, financial and technical factors involved in operating smaller turbines, as well as giving a boost to the renewable energy sector in the regions. The councils want to gain enough experience to figure out the pros and cons of small turbine development, particularly near houses. They also want to discover which partners they should work with, and the real energy benefits, investments levels and when they can expect returns from small turbine investment.
