While reading the following two articles on wind turbines in the April issue of Europhysics News:
C. le Pair, F. Udo and K. de Groot: Wind turbines as yet unsuitable as electricity providers. http://dx.doi.org/10.1051/epn/2012204
P.J. Eecen, H.A. Bijleveld and B. Sanderse: Wind energy research – development of advanced design tools. http://dx.doi.org/10.1051/epn/2012203
I was surprised to read such sharp opinions in such a widely diffused and normally soft magazine.
Hence, I thought it would be interesting to hear the reactions of the EGO and Virgo folk and, as such, I advertised the two articles by e-mail.
We publish in this issue of h, in the column Letters to the Editor, a subsequent exchange of letters and we mention the fact, upon the suggestion of Andrea Vicere’, that EPS and SIF are organising a school dedicated to the theme: http://en.sif.it/activities/energy_school/2012 with ‘energy storage’ being one of the central topics.
We will be happy to receive and publish further comments on this hot subject.
