The Global Consumer Wind Study has revealed that 79% of those surveyed have a positive perception of wind energy.
The study, by Vestas, a company which has pioneered wind energy for over 30 years now, and has installed over 43,000 wind turbines in 66 countries on six continents, surveyed 31,000 customers in 26 countries.
This is hopefully good news. Wind energy in the UK is currently being given a bit of a hard time; some claiming only wealthy landowners gain from government subsidies, some claiming we simply don’t have enough wind, and then there are those who claim wind turbines are a blot on the landscape. Personally, I find them attractive (but then I’ve always had a thing for pylons too).
