TE Energy and the Wind Industry

With the Developing economies having realized the advantage of Wind Power, we see maximum growth coming from the Emerging Economies in this sector. Latin America, India, South East Europe to name a few.

Iowa Now Gets 20% of Electricity from Wind

Iowa has led the nation in attracting wind energy manufacturers and building a robust supply chain that supports more than 2,300 jobs and involves over 80 Iowa businesses.

The south knows where the wind blows: forest sites in focus

Innovative technologies ready for large-volume production unlock onshore wind potential in Southern Germany. Commercial forests offer particularly attractive new wind-farm sites.

The Wind Industry in Canada

Wind energy has increased almost ten-fold in the last six years in Canada as governments seek ways to meet rising energy demand, reduce environmental impacts of electricity generation, and stimulate rural and industrial economic development.

Wind Farm Development: Efficiently Capturing Governmental Incentives in Project Contracts

Developing a wind farm is a complex process requiring the integration of a number of third parties such as engineers, contractors, and turbine suppliers/erectors. Fully capturing available federal, state, and local incentives will require communication, cooperation and some flexibility. Owners and developers should not rely on ad hoc solutions after bids are placed and contracts are signed, because that will increase transaction costs and the risk that certain incentives will be permanently lost.

Assessment of wind resources will help onshore development to take off

Systematic wind mapping offers a standardised data foundation for regional planning, taking the identification of areas which are particularly suitable for wind-farm projects to a completely new level. At the same time, it supports investors, planners and operators in identifying attractive sites and estimating amortisation periods. The independent TV SD experts have long-standing international experience, supporting wind projects across the world from planning to construction and operation.

Milbank Moves Into Wind Industry

Milbank studied renewables for years before deciding to enter the industry. Distributed wind generation allows nearly 70% of the US to install their own turbines, to produce their own power and control their own energy costs and consumption.

International Wind Energy Development: World Market Update 2010

This year's World Market Updated includes a full chapter dedicated to Direct-Drive WTG versus Gearbox-Equipped WTG. The increased use of the direct-drive turbines across the wind market is impacting the wind industry. The World Market Update 2010 identifies and compares the pros and cons of both the direct-drive and gearbox-equipped concepts, as well as the implications of using permanent magnets on a large scale.

Nheolis' 3D Wind Turbines

Mr. Haddjeri incorporated NHEOLIS in early 2006, after identifying the potential of Bernoulli's principle when applied to wind power. Advised by Marc LASSUS, former CEO of GEMPLUS, he has invested his own time and money to develop NHEOLIS' breakthough technology from the concept idea to the market product.

Airborne Wind Energy

The concept of large-scale wind power production using aerodynamically efficient kites was first proposed by University of California researcher M.L. Loyd who published seminal work in the Journal of Energy thirty years ago. In that paper, he described kites that utilized aircraft construction flying transverse to the wind at high speed.

Small Wind Industry - Nick Blitterswyk, Urban Green Energy

Urban Green Energy is a world leader in small wind energy, focused on providing high quality, high performance, and attractive products to customers around the world. UGE's products include vertical axis wind turbines and hybrid streetlamps.

Wind Power is Going to the Big City

From business to government to schools, wind power is creating new opportunities.

Sea Change: Recommendations For Offshore Wind Farms

Though North America lags Europe on the wind energy front, with less cumulative installed capacity despite a vast geographical size difference, growth is strong and has only scratched the surface. Huge potential, particularly, exists in offshore installations, which represent just a small percentage of global wind capacity to date. Ocean-based turbines, both floating and fixed, take advantage of powerful, more consistent wind speeds and a topography that doesn't obstruct wind flow.

In Support of Wind Energy: The Foundations that Underlie Wind Projects

Foundations are critical to the success of a wind turbine project, and since foundation types are as varied as the earth conditions and types of structures being supported, we examine below some of the considerations involved in foundation selection such as siting, cost, and geotechnology.

Wind Powered Engines And The Elusive 59% Efficiency

Images of the 3 bladed wind engines are now seen everywhere and they have come to symbolize intelligent energy creation for virtually everyone but are these designs actually the most efficient ones possible? No one seems to know their efficiency so that vital issue is completely overlooked and rarely discussed. Efficiency is important to all.
