Quotes

"These are overwhelmingly near events where no injury, harm or damage resulted. Far from being a negative – reporting of this type is an example of industry good practice in that it enables safety improvements to be made before more serious events occurs. The extrapolation in applying the data to fire safety by the researchers is therefore extremely misleading."
"Brazil is particularly suitable for wind energyenergy investments, taking into account the attractiveness of both the natural environment and the commercial background" Chairman Gerard Mestrallet said in a statement
Hong, a mechanical engineer, was encouraged by more ordinary observation of snow early in his work: "When you look at the snowflakes around street lamps, that actually illustrate[s] vividly how snow motions can be captured and might be able to be used to track [air] flows."
"It's very important to have countries like Iran joining Global Wind Day because if more countries are involved it means we can learn about more examples of the different issues affecting the wind industry around the world" a GWEC spokesperson told Windpower Monthly
