Simon Hogg commented on FT expressing concern on wind turbine models' rapid development.

The rapid pace of development of wind turbines means models are being introduced before the performance of existing models has been observed over the long term, raising questions about whether potential problems are understood. Prof Hogg said that: “I don’t know of any other industry that’s pushed ahead at this pace in terms of bringing new models to market before there’s any real service experience on the previous levels. That has put a lot of risk into the industry.” [Image taken from]
