European countries have excelled in the R&D of new and innovative small wind turbine designs, mainly for integration with urban infrastructure such as buildings, roads and street lamps. However, they have continued using traditional designs and have been unenthusiastic about manufacturing or installing new models. Negative public sentiment over urban wind power could be the main factor behind this reluctance to adopt newer designs – since most of these designs are meant for urban integration; as well as the risk aversion that thwarts commercialization. China, on the other hand, does not have a public sentiment problem with urban wind power, and finds it easier to commercialize the designs due to low-cost manufacturing. China has been more open to implementing the European designs, and their own indigenous innovative designs, at a commercial scale.
