One of the issues here is the presence in Mongolia of rare earths.
Emerging economies like China’s are, at government level anyway, prepared to bear the environmental costs of market dominance.
In this case the environmental and health costs to humans and to wildlife come from the volumes of highly toxic fluid waste resulting from the process of separating the rare earths (which coexist); of which neodymium is used to make the substantial magnets needed in the turbines themselves.
As a major producer of rare earths, China – Mongolia – has also become a major manufacturer and supplier of turbines, contributing significantly to its dominance in this industry.

Last night’s was the event the above article was born from.
Pity you missed the launch – but from a quick preliminary scan, the book seems well worth reading.

- End of Castle Toward soap opera may be sale to soap tycoon
The council will have to retain all current arrangements to insure and secure the Castle Toward property until the point of exchange of contracts; so the £22,250 monthly fees will continue to apply until that point is reached – with whoever buys it.
Your scenario on grant applications, which would include the enterprise bodies, has to be the reality of the situation and these processes are not quick.
