  • 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 ...

  • America's First Offshore Wind Farm Just Started Producing Energy: VICE News Tonight on 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.

  • North Sea Island TenneT

    North Sea Infrastructure The future development of a North Sea energy system up to approx. 2050 will require a rollout, coordinated at European level, of interlinked offshore interconnectors, i.e. a so-called interconnection hub, combined with large-scale wind power. Any surplus wind power could be converted into other forms of energy, or stored. Situating this interconnection hub on a modularly constructed island in a relatively shallow part of the North Sea would result in significant cost savings. These are the starting points for a proposed efficient, affordable and reliable energy system on the North Sea, which will contribute to European objectives being met. This vision does not preclude the option of providing renewably generated power from the wind farms to nearby oil and gas plat...

  • U.S. builds first offshore wind farm

    In the U.S. today, wind power accounts for about five percent of all electricity generation, but a new project aims to change that. A $300 million installation off the coast of Block Island, Rhode Island, takes the renewable energy technology out to sea. Gov. Gina Raimondo anticipates the project is the beginning of a new industry, but some locals are skeptical. Mike Taibbi reports.

  • German Offshore Wind Capacity More Than Doubles in 2014

    Germany's offshore wind capacity more than doubled last year as investors warm up to the technology, helping Europe's largest economy in its ambitious push into renewable power. German engineering association VDMA said on Thursday, at the end of 2014, total installed offshore wind capacity stood at 2.35 gigawatts compared with 915 megawatts at the end of 2013. Of the 2.35 GW, about 1.05 GW were connected to the power grid, VDMA said, highlighting the need to speed up network connections to reach Germany's goal of having 6.5 GW of capacity installed and connected by 2020. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/environment/~3/siOs0ujRPMs/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com

  • WINDTRUST - New erosion protection for offshore wind turbines

    Danish Researchers have developed an innovative coating system which significantly increases the performance of offshore wind turbine blades. The harsh offshore environment with heavy rain causes the blades to erode, leading to a significant reduction in efficiency and energy production. To overcome this problem, new technologies are being tested under the European project Windtrust. The new coating lowers the costs of maintenance and downtime. Offshore wind turbines play an increasingly important role in renewable power generation. In 2015, for the second year in a row, Denmark set the world record for wind power, producing 42% of its electricity from wind turbines. More of it at www.windtrust.eu

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.

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.
