  • 2013 to be Record Year for Offshore Wind

    Offshore wind power installations are on track to hit a seventh consecutive annual record in 2013. Developers added 1,080 megawatts of generating capacity in the first half of the year, expanding the world total by 20 percent in just six months. Fifteen countries host some 6,500 megawatts of offshore wind capacity. Before the year is out, the world total should exceed 7,100 megawatts. Although ...

  • Wind Energy Market in China 2014

    This latest market research report titled Wind Energy Market in China 2014 analyses how the renewable energy sector is gaining importance in China and how wind energy has become an indispensable part of this sector. With the gap in demand and supply of energy increasing at a steady pace, it has become necessary to look beyond conventional sources for generating energy. This has led to a shift in ...


  • China Wind Power 2010 - an enlightening exhibition

    China Wind Power is the largest wind energy event in Asia, where some 500 exhibitors displayed their products this October – a 25% increase on 2009. The event was hosted by the major organisations in the wind energy industry in China: Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) China Renewable Energy Industries Association (CREIA) Chinese Wind Energy Association (CWEA) ...

  • Ireland`s growing potential in Wind Energy

    For a nation battling double digit unemployment and near total dependency on imported fossil fuels to meet its energy needs, the growing job creation potential of renewable energy in Ireland is like a breath of fresh air. The Irish government has been battling growing unemployment for the last five years - currently at 14.8 percent - while at the same time seeking ways to lower the country's ...

  • Offshore Wind Development Picking Up Pace

    Wind power is the world’s leading source of renewable electricity, excluding hydropower, with 238,000 megawatts of capacity installed at the start of 2012. Thus far, almost all of this wind power has been tapped on land; worldwide just 4,600 megawatts of offshore wind farms were operating as of mid-2012. Offshore wind capacity is growing quickly, however, expanding nearly six-fold ...

  • Pumped hydro storage softens blow of wind imbalance penalties

    Quarry Battery is developer of the £160 million ($249.2 million) Glyn Rhonwy pumped hydro facility in Wales which will be the UK’s first grid-scale electricity storage facility for decades. The facility will produce nearly 50 MW of electricity using pumped hydro technology. As more fossil fuel-fired generation is taken offline and wind capacity grows, grid operators will ask wind ...

  • Offshore Wind Versus Solar in the Eastern US: An Unexpected Rivalry

    Less than a decade ago, offshore wind energy and solar PV were similarly priced energy sources. Unsubsidized installed costs for both exceeded $5 per watt, or more than double that for land-based wind. Despite their cost, both technologies were seen as the best hopes for supplying urban centers with green power, especially in the BOSNYWASH (Boston-New York-Washington, DC) corridor of the eastern ...

  • Wind Tops 10 Percent Share of Electricity in Five U.S. States

    A new picture is emerging in the U.S. power sector. In 2007, electricity generation from coal peaked, dropping by close to 4 percent annually between 2007 and 2011. Over the same time period, nuclear generation fell slightly, while natural gas-fired electricity grew by some 3 percent annually and hydropower by 7 percent. Meanwhile, wind-generated electricity grew by a whopping 36 percent each ...

  • EC support for UK power link raises Ireland’s offshore export potential

    The European Commission (EC) announced November 18 it had given priority status to ISLES, a cluster of Irish Sea grid projects which would transmit power from proposed Irish offshore wind farms to the UK grid. There are currently five Irish offshore windfarm projects for a total 2.6 GW of capacity. The inclusion of ISLES in the EC’s list of “projects of common interest” allows ...

  • Brazil transmission: what impact on O&M?

    Brazilian wind developers may increasingly have to factor transmission links into their operations and maintenance (O&M) plans if grid connection delays persist in the market. Bloomberg earlier this year reported that firms such as CPFL Energia, Brazil’s largest private sector utility, with more than 1.3GW of wind farms in operation or under construction, were stepping forward to bid ...

  • Green Energy Fuel by Briquettes Machine

    Now a day’s demand of energy is increasing very rapidly but we have the limited sources to satisfy the energy requirements.  This energy demand is expected to grow almost by half over in the next two decades. So it is causing fear that our resources will run out by future. This will lead to shocking consequences of global economy.   On the other side, Due to the emission ...
