The first court date in Kenetech's patent infringement lawsuit against German wind turbine manufacturer Enercon and US renewables developer New World is set for November 17. In the lawsuit, Kenetech alleges that it owns the rights to variable-speed technology in the US. The lawsuit, originally filed in District Court in San Jose, California, at the end of January, refers to the Enercon E-40 technology. Ground was to have been broken on a 40 MW wind plant of E-40 machines at Big Springs in Texas, but a delay now appears almost certain.
