Prime Ministerial candidate Prodi favours large wind plant

Romano Prodi, the centre-left's candidate for prime minister in Italy's national elections in April, says he is in favour of wind energy, but within limits. Prodi, the former president of the European Commission, told a recent roundtable on the Kyoto Protocol hosted by Italian environmental association Legambiente that he does not foresee the extensive use of wind energy in Italy, adding that it only makes sense to set up wind farms where it is possible to have a larger plant. Prodi says he is counting on both energy savings and renewable energy sources like solar to meet Italy's Kyoto commitments. Talk of resuming production of nuclear power, which was shelved after a 1987 referendum, is premature.
