  • America's First Offshore Wind Farm Just Started Producing Energy (HBO)

    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.

  • World's largest floating offshore wind farm to be built off the coast of Scotland - TomoNews

    PETERHEAD, SCOTLANDScotland'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 ...

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 attached to the seabed, these types of wind turbines are cheaper than traditional ocean turbines and can be placed in deeper waters. Existing offshore wind turbines, which need to stand on concrete or steel foundations, are expensive if anchored to depths greater than 40 meters, reported the Guardian. Statoil's goal with this $232 million pilot project is to demonstrate a way to harness wind power that can increase the global market potential for turbines. Offshore wind is a key component of Europe's plan to source 20 percent of its total energy consumption from renewables, reported the Independent. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Despite its benefits, the offshore wind industry is still in its nascent phase in the United States, where there are currently no operational offshore wind farms. The first U.S. offshore wind project is expected to come online in summer 2016 at Block Island, 12 miles off the coast of Rhode Island. Deepwater Wind is leading the Block Island project, which will generate 50 megawatts (MW) of power, enough to run 17,000 homes. U.S. Wind is working on a much larger project off the coast of Maryland, where it plans to have 500 MW of offshore wind operating by 2020. Offshore wind is a far more mature power source in Europe, with more than 10 gigawatts (GW) of offshore wind power currently operating. What is the future of offshore wind in the United States? Can the U.S. offshore wind industry match Europe's success? Efforts in the Senate have sought to catalyze the young U.S. industry. Sen. Tom Carper (D-DE) and Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) reintroduced the Incentivizing Offshore Wind Power Act this past July, to provide a 30 percent investment tax credit for the first 3,000 MW of offshore wind put online. Such an incentive would help the United States realize some of offshore wind's potential, which the National Renewable Energy Laboratory estimates is more than 4,000 GW, enough to meet all U.S. electricity needs four times over. With 82 offshore wind farms and 10,393.6 MW of installed wind energy capacity, the European Union leads the world in the production of offshore wind energy. And its lead is growing. Europe has been installing offshore wind turbines at a staggering pace—in the first six months of 2015, Europe installed 2,342.9 MW of offshore wind. With 15 wind farms currently under construction, that will bring the sum to 4,268.5 MW. As Europe's offshore wind leaders, the United Kingdom, Denmark and Germany have proved that offshore wind is a valuable source of clean energy.

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 powerful offshore wind farm in the North Sea the nuclear phaseout is impossible. If the new government stands for their decision of a nuclear phaseout from summer 2011, they should become a reliable and constructive partner of offshore wind energy again as soon as possible," explained Michael Baur, Chief Executive of the Bard Group. But the main challenge facing any new government will be getting the power to the people. The recently opened Riffgatt offshore wind farm has yet to be connected to the mainland, and experts say the electric grid is in dire need of an upgrade. So, whoever wins September's elections will have to think about how to finance a renewable future.

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 extend EV driving range by more than 60 percent, to about 621 miles per charge. The new battery optimizes battery space and achieves maximum storage capacity by using the bipolar principal used in fuel cells. The bipolar electrode is a metallic tape coated with ceramic storage materials, one side as the anode and one side as the cathode. The battery cells will also be stacked on top on one another, instead of side-by-side, with bipolar plates on top. The plates carry the current across its surface, simplifies the design, reduces resistance and makes more electricity available more quickly. So far the EMBATT hasn’t left the lab, but the team plans to develop bigger batteries and conduct initial testing in EVs by 2020. SO, WHAT DO YOU THINK? Do you think a more efficient battery would encourage more drivers to switch to electric vehicles? In what other ways could this battery technology be used? Let us know what you think in the comments below. The Biggest Offshore Wind Farm In Europe Is Now Operational Off the coast of the Netherlands in Europe, one of the world’s largest wind farms just turned on. The Gemini wind farm is considered to be the largest not just in terms of its physical size but also regarding its expected production output. Currently, the wind farm is composed of 150 turbines spread out over a sprawling 26 miles. The Gemini wind farm also isn’t visible to any Netherlands residents, as it is situated about 53 miles from the Netherlands coast. Although an added benefit, the location for the farm was actually chosen because the wind speeds are consistently high, averaging 22 mph. And with a capacity of a whopping 600 MW, this makes the Gemini farm the second largest offshore wind farm in the world with only the London Array ahead of it. Over the next few decades, the wind farm is expected to supply energy to 1.5 million residents throughout the Netherlands, while also reducing the amount of CO2 emissions by more than 1.3 million tons every year. According to the site’s building contractors, the wind farm took just two years to complete, putting it ahead of schedule and under budget. So, what do you think? Offshore wind energy is becoming an ever-popular and cost-effective choice for those looking to invest in renewable energy. Do you think more companies will jump on the wind energy bandwagon? What potential limitations or benefits do you see? Tweet me your thoughts @MnetNews or leave your comments in the section below.

About the Speaker: Alla Weinstein is the CEO of Principle Power Inc., a technology development company based in Seattle and focused on the deep-water offshore wind energy market. Ms. Weinstein was the co-founder and CEO of AquaEnergy Group (AEG), a company that successfully developed a wave energy conversion technology that was acquired by Finavera Renewables Inc., a TSXV listed Renewable Energy company, where she was the General Manager and a Director. Alla brings over 30 years of industry experience, building global engineering projects for companies like Honeywell and Boeing. She is a frequent speaker in the US and Europe on the development of Renewable Energy and has served as the first President of the European Ocean Energy Association. Alla holds a BE in Electrical Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology and an MBA from Thunderbird, the Garvin School of International Management. About the Speech: In recent years there have been two significant trends in the wind industry: developers seeking higher quality wind resources and the development of larger turbines. Floating wind turbines is a significant innovation in the renewable energy sector as it provides developers with better access to offshore resources unconstrained by water depth. In her presentation, Ms. Weinstein examined the policy basis for the development of renewable energy and offshore wind energy in particular, in Europe. She elaborated on Principle Power's pilot project, the first full-scale WindFloat which will be completed in September 2011 and which will be located off the coast of Portugal. Drawing a comparison between Ireland and Portugal in terms of our similar climate, energy mix, size and population, Ms. Weinstein alluded to Ireland's potential for developing its massive offshore wind energy resource. Finally she commented that WindFloat technology could play a central role in making offshore wind energy more accessible in Ireland and across Europe. This event was the third event in the Energy Ireland Series, which is proudly sponsored by ESB.

Vindeby Offshore Wind Farm near Lolland in the south east of Denmark was constructed in 1991 as a demonstration project which was to prove whether it was possible to generate green power offshore. The world's first offshore wind farm was a great success, but after more than 25 years of operation, the Vindeby wind turbines were worn down, and DONG Energy therefore decided to decommission the wind farm.
