We have calculated the density of wind power plants in the countryside, for all French departments.
The subject touches the French countryside in his body. Wind turbines could become one of the main themes of the 2022 presidential election. There is awareness: the density of facilities is a problem that concerns a large part of the country outside the cities. But the scale of the phenomenon is still in fact difficult to determine. The raw numbers usually used, at the departmental level, are vague and do not allow the real impact on campaigns to be perceived. Our ranking of rural wind intensity reveals some surprises.
To get a true-to-life picture, we only considered the area of the circle outside the urban areas and canceled out the “small” fixtures on the roofs, for example, that don’t cause any inconvenience.
