1jw994uladl2t Global Offshore Wind Energy Market will increase CAGR by 16.2% Annually till 2022

Energy has been extracted from wind sources since a long time. Wind power generation is the harnessing of kinetic energy from the wind and its conversion into electric energy. This is achieved through the utilization of wind turbines to generate electricity. Energy in the wind turns three propeller-like blades around a rotor. The rotor is connected to the main shaft, which spins the generator to produce electricity. Onshore wind energy has been utilized for many years however, offshore wind…

R&D lab considers 15-MW wind turbine from superconducting magnets

GE says its experience with superconducting equipment from its healthcare MRIs is applicable to generators for wind turbines. High torque at low rotational speeds may let wind turbines product up to 15 MW and without a gearbox."] [/caption]

GE Global Research, the technology development arm of GE, says it has begun work on the first phase of a 2-year, $3 million project from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop a next generation wind-turbine generator that could support… Continue

Lake Erie sharing agreement, a precedent for future projects?

Being a Cleveland native, I've taken special interest in the offshore wind project planned for Lake Erie. For those of you who aren't as familiar with the story, an initial 5-7 turbines are slated for construction in 2013. But what's especially interesting to me is the agreement to share revenue…

What will the think of next?

I recently came across a site with a number of interesting "eco-marine" water crafts. From wind, solar, and hybrid marine-powered ships, the company, Eco Marine Power, says it aims to develop ships that use less fuel and emit less pollution.


Furthermore, in July 2010, a project was started in Japan to develop a commercial system for using wind power and solar energy on-board ocean going vessels. This project…

Kathie's Question of the day: How important is it to look to nature for innovation?

My editor passed along an interesting article to me this morning. 


Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have created an artificial leaf that uses solar cells to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, while creating energy in the process. Daniel Nocera, who lead the…

Kathie's question of the day: Is global warming a threat to wind turbines?

Here we go again on day two of the week and I got another question to pick your brain with.

I read an article naming research that has found countries relying on wind energy to supply clean power are set to get less juice for their buck as global warming continues.

Apparently University of Texas (Austin) researcher Diandong Ren has found that as temperatures rise, electricity generated by wind turbines will…

Kathie's question of the day: is the GOP shrinking the wind market?

Hey all,

I read an article concerning an interview with Angelika Pull, communications director for the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC). The author spoke with Pullen about differences between wind energy development in Europe and the U.S.

Pullen says that with GOP power in the U.S. usually doesn't "bode well" for renewables. She explains that she is confident in Europe's goal of…
