BRE confirm micro-turbines not best suited to urban sites

BRE have just issued ‘Micro-wind turbines in urban environments: an assessment’ (BRE Trust report FB17, ISBN 978-1-84806-021-0) and although I haven’t managed to get a copy myself the Guardian have and they dissect it here.

The gist of things is that micro-turbines aren’t a great idea in urban areas on a domestic scale.  Good to see the BRE agreeing with what seems to be the general consensus of most folks I know.  And now I have loads of data to beat people over the head with.  Always a good thing…
