Europe's offshore wind industry booming as costs fall

The Guardian:  On a sunny October morning, our boat passes the run-down relicts of Liverpool’s maritime past and heads down the river Mersey and into the Irish Sea. As we steam offshore, I see in the distance a cluster of tall structures that soon reveal themselves to be towers of a wind turbine array. Arriving at the windfarm, six miles offshore, the turbines rise as high as 650ft, taller than the tallest church in the world. Each of the turbines’ three shiny metallic rotor blades is nearly 300ft long. “A single rotation of an eight-megawatt turbine will cover the daily electricity consumption of an average British household,” says Benj Sykes, vice president of Dong Energy Wind Power, the company that is constructing and co-owns this wind project, as the boat rocks in five-foot swells.   Cont'd...

PVinsights: Solar panel prices stabilize amid the rising upstream prices

After a long streak of losses, solar panel prices eventually stabilize this week. Major module manufacturers have been squeezed by the rapidly increasing prices of cells and wafers so as to leave the solar panel prices unchanged, although they are actually planning to adjust their prices upwards, particularly in the regions where solar panel prices were mostly suppressed, such as China and India. Although the demand improves globally, it is still fragile. As a result of a mild demand recovery, major module makers hesitate to raise the prices immediately, leading the solar panel prices to stabilize this week.

Full Spectrum Stresses Importance of Private Wireless Data Networks for Cybersecurity

The grid is undergoing a revolution due to the introduction of new energy resources like solar & wind. In order to gain control of these resources and maintain supply & demand of electricity, utilities need to radically increase the number of grid control points while minimizing security vulnerabilities presented by automation & interconnectivity.
