The material covered in this chapter can be of direct use to other aspects of wind energy which are discussed in the other sections of this book.

Systems design – system design requires knowledge of representative average wind conditions, as well as information on the turbulent nature of the wind and extreme wind events. This information is used in the design and selection of a wind turbine intended for a particular site. Performance evaluation – performance evaluation requires determining the expected energy productivity and cost effectiveness of a particular wind energy system based on the wind resource. Siting – siting requirements can include the assessment or prediction of the relative desirability of candidate sites for one or more wind turbines.

Wind turbines installed in California were not limited to those made in the United States. In fact, it was not long before Danish turbines began to have a major presence in the California wind farms. The Danish machines also had some teething problems in California, but in general they were closer to production quality than were their US counterparts. When all the dust had settled after the wind rush had ended, the majority of US manufacturers had gone out of business. The Danish manufacturers had restructured or merged, but had in some way survived.
