  • Planning of the grid integration of wind energy in Germany onshore and offshore up to the year 2020

    The ongoing penetration of large amounts of wind power capacities in Germany has strong impacts on the necessary promotion volumes (direct costs of Renewable Energy Source (RES) promotion) but also on necessary grid extensions, the future need for regulating and reserve power capacities, the thermal power plant system and the electricity price for end-consumers (indirect effects). On behalf of ...

  • The Future Cost of Wind Power

    Chapter 1 The economics of wind power Wind power is capital intensive with most of the investment required upfront. The largest capital cost component is the turbine itself which can account for between 40% and 80% of the total capital cost of an onshore wind installation. Costs offshore are higher because of the more expensive operating environment and the greater difficulty establishing ...


  • Global wind power capacity reaches 100,000MW

    At its current growth rate, global installed wind power capacity will top 100,000 megawatts in March 2008. In 2007, wind power capacity increased by a record-breaking 20,000 megawatts, bringing the world total to 94,100 megawatts—enough to satisfy the residential electricity needs of 150 million people. Driven by concerns regarding climate change and energy security, one in every three countries ...

  • Think wind power can`t meet our needs? The EU is getting closer to proving you wrong.

    While climate talk has by no means been centre stage in this year’s presidential election, it’s quite a different story across the pond. In recent years, the comparatively progressive European Union member states have been turning up the dial on climate concern, and it’s not all hot air. They’ve undertaken a number of initiatives recently, particularly on the wind front, ...

  • Offshore wind costs and development risk

    How procurement strategies, manufacturing costs and new technology stack up against development risk in Offshore Wind Projects. Offshore wind is changing, and it is changing for the better. In 2006, offshore wind deployment costs started rising significantly, from £1.5m/ MW, in 2016 prices, to over £4m/MW in 2012, without a clear indication as to what the price ceiling would ...

  • An integrated assessment for wind energy in Lake Michigan coastal counties

    The benefits and challenges of onshore and offshore wind energy development were assessed for a four‐county area of coastal Michigan. Economic, social, environmental, and spatial dimensions were considered. The coastal counties have suitable wind resources for energy development which could contribute toward Michigan's ten percent renewable energy standard. Wind energy is cost‐effective with ...

  • 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 ...

  • Rising offshore plant capacities lead to greater data-based O&M gains

    The growing size of offshore wind farms provides greater scope for data optimisation during Operations and Maintenance, while software solutions can also help mitigate risk during the development phase, Marcus Ihle, Senior Consultant at Outsmart, said. Further gains could be made if operators share more data from their growing databases with other plant owners, Ihle said. The ...

  • Oceans of Energy

    Technologies that harness the energy of moving water or temperature differentials in the oceans promise to deliver abundant carbon-free electricity. Long before humans got hooked on fossil fuels, we learned how to harness the power of water to do work. Rivers ran mills that ground flour, sawed logs or spun looms that transformed fibers into textiles. Later generations realized that moving water ...
