Energy: wind power in #Hungary and #Austria

This morning I caught the early train from Budapest to Vienna.

(I intended to go on a cycling holiday when I set out on Wednesday night, but it has turned out more like taking a bicycle on holiday. Taking it for a spin in the cities I’ve visited, between train trips, has felt like taking the dog for a necessary walk.)

Just before the frontier at Hegyeshalom, we passed a nice field of wind turbines.

(Shortly before, I saw this older building – is it a power station too?)

And soon after the frontier, on the Austrian side, there’s another big wind farm. I like the stripes on the blades, I wonder what they’re for.

I’m kicking myself because a little later, I could have had a similar picture plus an array of PV panels in the foreground. I wasn’t quick enough.
