Abstract

Renewable energy sources including biomass, wave, tidal, solar, and wind power are near the top of European agendas for sustainable development. Cowell and Strachan (2007) note that renewable energy sources-wind power in particular-have an exalted position that is owed to a combination of factors. Concerns over ‘peak’ oil and security of energy, the economics and market for ‘green technologies’, and further climate change have all fuelled demands for renewable energy to make an ever-increasing contribution to the energy mix (Meyers 2007; Strachan et al. 2006)
