A British firm has welcomed the idea “clusters” of quality wind turbines will work best in the future.

As ELN reported this week, researchers at the University of Delaware (UD) and Stanford University said power generated by wind could hit a “saturation” point when too many turbines leave too little wind to extract.

Phil McVan, managing director of Myriad CEG Wind, which has installed 500 turbines across the UK, said: “We welcome its findings about the importance of wind power and its benefits to the environment, compared to other generating technologies.  The report is a strong endorsement of our strategy of single or small clusters of high quality and efficient turbines spread across a number of locations.”
