With ever soaring demand for electricity and plenty of good wind resources, Latin America has long been tipped as a potentially huge wind energy market. Last month, Brazil -- where Enercon turbines are made (right) -- passed a renewables incentive program, while Mexico agreed a trail-blazing transmission contract for a large new wind development. Both are items of good news for the industry, but both could still be swept away by the underlying political currents which often make the region such a volatile place to do business in.
