NREL Analysis Identifies Drivers of Offshore Wind Development

As much as 20% of regional power needs along the Atlantic coast could be served by offshore wind farms by 2050, according to researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)

Offshore Wind Industry Poised for Growth, but Economic Pressures and Tech Innovation Need to Be Managed

Speed of build-out is creating pressure on materials and supply chains, port infrastructure, and available construction and maintenance vessels. Bigger turbines and new technology drive bigger exposures for insurers which need to be understood in partnership with developers.

Can We Use Underwater Battery Storage for Offshore Wind Farms?

Wind power decreases global carbon dioxide emissions by about 1.1 billion tons annually and is gaining popularity as an energy source. As many countries ramp up their offshore wind production, there is a mounting need for durable underwater batteries.

Drive-drill-drive Technique For Pile Installation

The globalisation of offshore wind means that regions including the US and Asia are seeing a rapid take-off of infrastructure installation, with government goals to deploy a set number of gigawatts (GW) within a given timeframe.

Assembling the world's largest floating offshore wind farm

Floating offshore wind will be key to delivering cost-effective renewable energy to consumers. Equinor is leading the way in developing this technology with Hywind Tampen, the largest floating wind farm to date.

Offshore Wind Farms Could Interfere With Radars

Environmentalists and marine professionals recognize a significant limitation with offshore wind farm expansions. Namely, ships are experiencing more frequent collisions. Wind farms are interfering with vessels' radar systems and creating safety challenges.

Purdue researchers test 3D concrete printing system as part of NSF-funded project

Transitioning to clean wind energy could become more cost-efficient as Purdue University researchers test a new technology created by an international startup to anchor offshore wind turbines.

Wind Catching Systems launches floating offshore wind technology

The technology increases efficiency, cuts acreage use by 80% and reduces production costs, which will enable floating offshore wind to produce electricity at bottom fixed prices.

Latest Technical Breakthroughs in Wind Energy

This paper will review recent advancements in wind energy over the last two to three years, with specific focuses on improving wind energy harvesting, offshore wind turbine foundation designs, and decreasing turbine fatigue.

Partnerships Amplify Velocity of Offshore Wind Innovation

The U.S. Department of Energy and the White House have made offshore wind a centerpiece of plans to strengthen the nation's energy infrastructure, announcing a goal to deploy 30 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030-a huge leap from the 42 megawatts currently in operation.

VINEYARD WIND RECEIVES RECORD OF DECISION FOR FIRST IN THE NATION COMMERCIAL SCALE OFFSHORE WIND PROJECT

Federal Milestone will Launch Offshore Wind Industry and Bring Thousands of Jobs, Reduce Carbon Pollution and Lower Costs for Ratepayers

Offshore Wind Turbine Market to witness steady growth of 18% during 2020-2026

The offshore wind turbine market is anticipated to witness a lucrative growth over the forthcoming years owing to the global shift towards renewable energy and increasing R&D by key market players.

Floating Wind Farms on an Upward Wave

Now, however, many green energy companies are looking toward a new kind of offshore wind turbine that won't need a concrete foundation. This new technology allows a turbine to float instead of sitting on the ocean floor.

Floating offshore wind turbines: Brazil to become active player in the clean energy race

Researchers from the University of Sao Paulo are focusing on several aspects of modeling and analysis of offshore wind turbines.

Team Develops Floating Turbine To Harvest Deep-Ocean Wind Energy

University of Texas at Dallas researcher Dr. Todd Griffith has spent years working on an offshore turbine design that can convert those deep-ocean winds into electricity. Recently, Griffith received a $3.3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to take his technology to the next level.

HPS EnduraCoilTM Cast Resin Medium Voltage Transformer

HPS EnduraCoilTM Cast Resin Medium Voltage Transformer

HPS EnduraCoil is a high-performance cast resin transformer designed for many demanding and diverse applications while minimizing both installation and maintenance costs. Coils are formed with mineral-filled epoxy, reinforced with fiberglass and cast to provide complete void-free resin impregnation throughout the entire insulation system. HPS EnduraCoil complies with the new NRCan 2019 and DOE 2016 efficiency regulations and is approved by both UL and CSA standards. It is also seismic qualified per IBC 2012/ASCE 7-10/CBC 2013. Cast resin transformers are self-extinguishing in the unlikely event of fire, environmentally friendly and offer greater resistance to short circuits. HPS also offers wide range of accessories for transformer protection and monitoring requirements.
