Our readers’ favorites last month were stories on the future of the energy markets, resident-centered urban planning and a solution that could change the wind power sector. The piece on corporate power purchase agreements, authored by top lawyers from CMS, was the most read this time.

1 – One alternative to state subsidy schemes is the corporate power purchase agreement

3 – A new wood structure intended to hold a wind turbine is as strong as steel

Modvion built an experimental wooden wind turbine tower on Bjorko island near the city of Gothenburg and said it would make the power production technology climate-neutral from the start. It is the highest object of its kind in Europe so far.
