Turbines for First U.S. Offshore Wind Farm

The Maritime Executive:  Preparations for the groundbreaking Block Island Wind Farm – America's first – are well under way, with the regulatory permits obtained, the funding procured and the jacket installation complete. Now the actual equipment for the farm, towers, blades and five massive turbines have been shipped, ready for assembly. 

The blades arrrived in Providence, RI from Denmark on the general cargo shipSuomigracht late last month, and the turbines are on board the Fred Olsen jackup construction vessel Brave Tern, currently under way across the North Atlantic. When theTern arrives, it will begin the process of installing the towers; that work is expected to begin in August. 

The 20-mile cable connecting Block Island with the mainland was completed on June 28 – providing the island with its first electrical and fiber optic connection ever. Deepwater Wind, the developer and operator of the farm, has completed a separate cable linking the facility with Block Island, and expects to finish cable linkages between the five wind towers this month.   Cont'd...

Why flying a kite could be the future of clean energy

Antony Michels for Yahoo Finance:  David Schaefer wants to sell $50,000 kites to farmers to help them generate electricity by harnessing the power of the wind.

Schaefer, 54, is the CEO of eWind Solutions, a Beaverton, Oregon, company he founded in 2013 after quitting his job as director of mechanical engineering at Xerox.

“Imagine when you were a kid in a field flying the kite,” Schaefer says. “When the wind picks up you remember feeling that pull on the string. Well that pull is really energy. That’s what we’re doing. We’re harnessing that energy.”  Cont'd...

PVinsights: Solar prices extend longest losing streak since 2016

The prices of both multi-crystalline and mono-crystalline modules continue to tumble this week. The slower demand in China has triggered fears over solar market turbulence, not just in China but across the Asia, with contagious spillovers to the global markets. The solar panel prices in China have experienced a great pressure as the competition among the suppliers become extremely intense in order to compete for limited solar projects especially after more domestic production capacities ramped up by Chinese 2nd tier suppliers. Meanwhile, in order to digest the excess stockpiles that left from slow China demand, the 2nd tier Chinese module suppliers also intend to strengthen its presences in the key solar markets, India and SEA where no punitive tariff are enforced. Hence, solar panel prices in these regions have seen fierce price competition with price quotes around $0.40/watt.
