In this week's podcast, we'll highlight some interesting changes to wind turbines that are helping companies take advantage of sites with lower wind resources. Scott Clavenna also talks to U.S. wind developer First Wind about the uncertainties it faces around federal incentives -- a problem that seems to come up every year for the industry. But with technological improvements that are making projects much more cost-competitive, the industry is getting a little bit closer to being prepared for an incentive-free environment.
