  • Turning Point: Powerful Haliade-X Offshore Wind Turbine Sets New Record, Passes Crucial Milestone

    A little over a year ago, the Haliade-X offshore wind turbine set an important record when a working prototype of the machine, located at the Port of Rotterdam, became the first wind turbine to produce 288 megawatt-hours of energy within 24 hours. That may have been enough to power 30,000 households in that area but it wasn’t enough for the Haliade-X, which just bested the feat. In October ...

  • Data Centers’ Energy Use Rises - What’s Next for Efficiency?

    We’ve often heard that for companies to lessen carbon footprint and become environmentally friendly, they must go online or put their papers and process in the “cloud”. But that’s not really the case, as storing files in the cloud also translates to renting a physical space where those data will be stored and accessed when needed. These places are called data centers. They ...
