Further, keywords on article pages are now linked for a convenient search across all MDPI journals.

We are pleased to report that special issue "Wind Turbines" has been successfully closed. 16 papers have been published in this issue.
Professor Lance Manuel, one of the Guest Editors of this issue, says "The wide-ranging set of articles from authors all over the world reflects the growing importance of wind energy development and highlights notable research studies. The articles cover a comprehensive set of topics that deal with measurements, inflow characterization, array effects, design, reliability, control, and power for small and large wind turbines."
A new special issue on this topic is planned to be set up soon for the year 2013, aiming to further encourage scholars in this field to share their research results in a timely way.
