PETERHEAD, SCOTLAND — Scotland's notoriously strong winds could pan out to be a blessing in disguise after the Scottish government recently approved plans for a floating wind farm right off of the Scottish coast. According to the Guardian, Statoil, a Norwegian energy company, plans to build a floating wind farm 15 miles off the coast of Peterhead, Scotland by the end of 2017. The floating wind farm, called the Hywind floating wind farm, will consist of five, 258-meter-high floating wind turbines. Each will have a floating steel tube filled with ballast as their base and they will be tethered to the seafloor by three moorings. Each of the five wind turbines will have a six-megawatt capacity, and together they will be able to power an estimated 20,000 homes. Because they're not actually ...

Located 100km off the island of Borkum in the North Sea, the 80 turbines are said to constitute the country's largest wind farm. Bard Energy claims it will power up to 400,000 households, and would go some way to achieving the goal of being nuclear free by 2022. "Without this powerfu...
This film offers some insight into the exciting and challenging process it has been to construct Denmark's largest offshore wind farm, Anholt, with a site approx. 20km long and approx. 5km wide and covers an area four times the size of the island of Anholt. More than 100 vessels were involved in the construction, and more than 3,000 people have been working offshore at the construction site.

The Belgian offshore wind sector is also building a solid reputation in the rest of Europe. Because of its expert knowledge and know-how, wind farm design/construction has become one of Belgium's key export products. Enjoy viewing this report. (English version)
Offshore wind not only guarantees power supply in Belgium, but it also creates direct and indirect employment in innovative technology. Belgium is currently one of the top 3 offshore wind countries in Europe as regards installed capacity. (English version)
The price of offshore wind has dropped by 50% in two years in the UK. We asked the head of renewables at Scottish Power to explain what's going on.
The first offshore wind farm in the United States started producing clean energy in mid-December. Located 13 miles from the coast of Rhode Island, the five turbines will power 17,000 homes, including all the energy necessary to sustain the nearby Block Island. The wind energy industry is the fastest-growing job sector in the country. Despite their popularity in Europe, however, coastal turbines have faced resistance in the U.S. “We have a huge, clean energy resource off of our coast, and to date we have not tapped into it,” Deepwater Wind CEO Jeff Grybowski told VICE News correspondent Arielle Duhaime-Ross.

Manufacturing Minute: The World’s Second Largest Offshore Wind Farm Is Now Operational In this episode, how to extend your EV’s battery life and a look at Europe’s largest offshore wind farm. This is your Manufacturing Minute. Extending EV Battery Life Range anxiety. The worry that your electric vehicle’s battery will run out before you’ve reached your destination. It’s something that’s in the back of the mind of most EV drivers, and is often cited as a big reason people are reluctant to switch to electric cars. Range anxiety may soon be a thing of the past thanks to research by the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems, ThyseenKrupp System Engineering and IAV Automotive Engineering. Together they are developing a new battery, called EMBATT, that could potentially e...
The animation shows the wind power production aggregated at synchronous area level for offshore wind power in 2020, comparing the production for the High Wind Shut Down and High Wind Extended Production. The work has been performed by DTU Wind Energy as part of the EU FP7 TWENTIES project, in the up-scaling work package. The target years are 2020 and 2030 and the offshore wind power production is aggregated at synchronous power system area. For more details, please see: http://goo.gl/Ndx0TV www.twenties-project.eu
Finite opportunities in traditional infrastructure assets have led to an increased volume of renewable energy investment. Mark Dooley, Macquarie Capital Europe’s Head of Infrastructure, Utilities and Renewables, discusses investment opportunities in the relatively new offshore wind market and what makes it attractive to investors.
