2018/11/26: a wake effect from upwind wind farms that can reduce the energy production of downwind neighbor turbines. We highlight the need for coordinated development and awareness of the big picture to maximize wind energy generation nationwide.
Dutch company claims to have a wind turbine that is 80% more efficient than existent turbines.
People are complaining of a range of health related problems and are attributing them to wind turbines. The question is: what is the cause of these health problems?
The Vortex, a radical new way to generate wind energy, is a bladeless wind turbine that looks like a giant rolled joint shooting into the sky.
The design of a new type of bladeless wind turbine is claimed to be both bird- and bat-friendly, while also being inexpensive and efficient.
The Sheerwind wind turbine promises to produce 6 times the electrical power than traditional wind turbines. This funny looking wind tower acts like a funnel, directing the wind from any angle, down through a tube to a ground based turbine generator. The funneling of the wind through a narrow passage effectively creates a "jet effect" increasing the
Companies such as Google race to invent flying wind turbines to bring life-changing electricity to isolated areas worldwide.
The national electrical grid might start paying factories to operate through the night when wind power is ample but electricity demand is normally low.
Germany's agressive and reckless expansion of wind and solar power has come with a hefty pricetag for consumers, and the costs often fall disproportionately on the poor. Government advisors are calling for a completely new start.
Solar energy production in the U.S. jumped by 49 percent last year, and wind energy by 16 percent, but we still have a long way to go.
When we flip on a light, we rarely think about water. But electricity generation is the biggest user of water in the United States. Thermoelectric power plants alone use more than 200 billion gallons of water a day - about 49 percent of the nation's total water withdrawals.
When the Scottish Government set itself the target of generating 100% of the country's electricity from renewables by 2020 many people scoffed. Now that goal is only six years away. Is it reachable? Remember
The wind turbine would convert wind to energy without any moving parts.
Renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power appear to be the impetus behind a South Australian proposal to substantially drop electricity prices, just as other states are hiking theirs. The Essential
A wind project in Wyoming and another off the coast of New England will help us transition to a future without coal.
