Recently I have also seen many buildings in England having a couple of turbines on their roofs. There are many projects in the UK researching on how to achieve more energy from wind power more efficiently.
Last December I had a trip to the Netherlands. There is a village near Amsterdam called 'Koog-Zaandjik' which is famous for its historical windmills and is also a great tourist attraction. The village was quite windy when I was touring around and it was a wonder that I only saw three modern wind turbines working at the time !
