The wind industry is always and everywhere about subsidies. The punitive cost of those subsidies are starting to appear in retail power bills, infuriating householders and driving businesses to the wall.

German wind turbine maker Siemens has set the scene by sacking 6,000 workers. Tens of thousands more of those so-called ‘green’ jobs will soon disappear, as Europe pulls the subsidy plug.
