Wind power seems to work in Finland
(Even though we're building a seriously BIG nuclear power station near Helsinki)
We have a company here - WinWind (www.winwind.fi) - that makes* 1 and 3MW turbines. I can see one of the latter from our balcony. Experimental/prototype I guess, as it doesn't run often, even when there's a stiff breeze blowing. Probably run it up to lube the bearings periodically. Rotates about 10*/min, 5* when I guess it's in 'maintenance mode'
However, on a nearby island called "Hailuoto" there's several of the spinny-things.
WinWind reckons they can provide 24MW to Estonia, and 30MW to Sweden in a recent press statement.
Previous poster got it right about 'sharing' power, as UK and France do and as Nokia Siemens Networks is looking to managing 'smart grids' - power, not computing - it's starting to make sense, even though that's a hell of a diversification from the core business. Why, even the ex-CEO of NSN (Simon Beresford-Wylie) has moved to a 'smart grid' company, Elster Group, so I think there's a bit of a move afoot.
Oh, they don't make much noise either, contrary to press statements.
*OK, designed here. New factory in Chennai, India, naturally.
