  • Offshore Wind Farms Draw Power from Grid to Operate in Subzero Temperatures

    Photo Credit: cseeman via Compfight cc [caption id="attachment_457" align="alignleft" width="287"] Photo Credit: cseeman via Compfight cc[/caption]   It has been confirmed by energy firms that there are times when wind turbines require electricity from grids. This however is not unique to wind farms since all power stations do not only generate power but also use them. In the case of offshore wind farms, they need electricity from the National Grid for their continuous spinning and also to prevent them from icing when the temperature is at below zero. To prevent ice from forming, the turbines have to idle at a slow pace when the temperature drops in calm condition. The blades also need to idle to drive the hydraulic systems responsible for turning the blades int...

  • Effects of Offshore Wind Farms on Marine Life

    Photo Credit: cseeman via Compfight cc [caption id="attachment_452" align="alignleft" width="309"] Photo Credit: cseeman via Compfight cc[/caption] Offshore wind power is an important renewable energy source that is invaluable in reducing carbon emissions. Breakthrough technologies have enabled the installation of high capacity turbines in deeper waters. However, there is still so much about its effect on the environment that is not known. Helen Bailey, researcher at the University Of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, and lead author of the study, together with her colleagues, examined the possible impacts of offshore wind advances on marine species. The researchers also offered recommendations for assessment and monitoring in the future considering the growing globa...

  • Super-Conductor Turbines Expected to Reduce Wind Energy Cost in Australia

    US Government Bolsters its Commitment to Renewables Australian researchers have developed new super-conductor turbines that could considerably improve the present day turbines and make possible the expansion of off-shore wind turbines within five years along the coast of Australia. A team of researchers from the Institute of Superconducting and Electronic Materials from the University Of Wollongong, New South Wales developed the new turbines that is 40% lighter than the turbines currently in use. This was achieved by simply removing the gear box that makes up present-day turbines. Eliminating the expensive, heavy and complex gear box also meant eliminating a big chunk of maintenance. A superconductor is an element that sends electrons from one atom to another conducts elect with ease. ...

  • Five New Wind Farms Increased America’s Wind Energy Capacity

    article-1 According to a most recent update report on Energy Infrastructure from the Office of Energy Projects of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), wind power supplied 68.41% or two thirds of the new electrical generating capacity of the United States in October of 2014. This development is due mainly to five wind farms that came on line recently in Texas, Nebraska, Michigan, Kansas, and Colorado which accounted for new capacity of 574 MW. Furthermore, there were five solar units with 31 MW and seven biomass units with 102 MW that were activated. These accounted for 3.69% and 12.16% respectively of new capacity. Three units of 132 MW natural gas accounted for the remaining 15.73%. In addition, in the past ten months renewable energy...
