  • Wind Turbine Systems in China

    Demand for wind turbine systems in China is forecast to rise 5.3 percent annually through 2013 to ¥62.3 billion. Increases will be driven by a variety of factors, primary among them government policies that encourage the use of renewable and nonpolluting electric power sources such as wind. Such policies include favorable pricing of wind power generated from wind farms, tax incentives and ...


  • Wind Turbine Payback

    US researchers have carried out an environmental lifecycle assessment of 2-megawatt wind turbines mooted for a large wind farm in the US Pacific Northwest.

  • `Anti-noise` silences wind turbines

    If wind energy converters are located anywhere near a residential area, they must never become too noisy even in high winds. Most such power units try to go easy on their neighbors' ears, but even the most careful design cannot prevent noise from arising at times: One source is the motion of the rotor blades, another is the cogwheels that produce vibrations in the gearbox. These are relayed to ...

  • A new algorithm improves the efficiency of small wind turbines

    In recent years, mini wind energy has been developing in a spectacular way. According to estimates by the WWEA-World Wind Energy Association, the level of development of the mini wind energy industry is not the same as that of the wind energy industry, although forecasts are optimistic. The main reason is that the level of efficiency of small wind turbines is low. To address this problem, the ...

  • Measuring emotional response and acceptance of wind turbines

    Wind energy will likely continue to play a leading role in reaching the EU’s renewable energy targets.
