  • Deep research on China wind turbine blade industry

    It was a professional and depth research report on China Wind Turbine Blade industry. Since 2009, the price of China's wind turbine blade has decreased substantially, which is a big challenge for these new entrants and existing wind turbine blade manufacturers. On the development trends of current domestic wind power equipment market, supply and demand tension has been greatly eased with the ...


  • What’s the Future of R&D in the Wind Industry?

    When the wind industry finally reacted to the world’s financial crisis—it didn’t fully hit us until 2010—at once, we lost both an incredibly vibrant global wind market and sufficiently robust profit margins. The market recovery is rebounding nicely now, thanks largely to government incentives, but profit margins will probably never fully recover—at least, not to the ...

  • Comparison of employment potential of the coal and wind power industries

    Australia, one of the world's largest producers of coal, is used as a case study to compare the employment potential in the coal and wind power electricity generation industries. It is revealed that, as a result of automation, employment in the coal mining industry fell by 45% between 1987 and 2002. Moreover, as a result of the restructuring of the electricity industry as a whole, employment in ...

  • Indian Wind Power Industry 2014 Analysis

    This latest market research report titled Wind Power Market in India 2014 analyses how the renewable energy sector is gaining importance in India and how wind energy has become an indispensable part of this sector. With the gap in demand and supply of energy increasing at a steady pace, it has become necessary to look beyond conventional sources for generating energy. This has led to a shift in ...


  • Towards a model of wind energy industry development in industrial and emerging economies

    Through the development and analysis of four in-depth case studies of the emergence of wind power industries in two industrialised and two emerging economies, the authors develop a model of sustainable energy industry development. The model demonstrates that fundamental economic indicators are insufficient for explaining new industry development. Environmental, institutional and cultural factors ...

  • US launches multi-million $ plan to kick start offshore wind industry

    The new strategy from the Obama administration could challenge the UK’s place as world’s leading offshore wind energy hub. The US government unveiled yesterday a coordinated strategic plan to accelerate the development of offshore wind energy in a move that could ultimately challenge the UK's position as the world's leading offshore wind hub. Interior secretary Ken Salazar and energy ...

  • Evolution of collaborative innovation network in China's wind turbine manufacturing industry

    This paper studies the 'catching–up' process of China's emerging wind turbine manufacturing ecosystem, and analyses the dynamics of the shifting collaborative innovation network for the period 1980–2011. We have focused on the leading wind turbine manufacturers [i.e., manufacturers of entire wind turbine system integrators (EWSIs)], as well as manufacturers of the turbines' sub–ecosystems (i.e., ...

  • China`s Overseas Investments in the Wind and Solar Industries: Trends and Drivers

    Shifting to a low-carbon economy will require current emitting countries and projected future emitters to rapidly scale up their investments in renewable energy. In recent years, major emerging economies like China, India, and Brazil have been catching up with leading developed country investors in Europe and the United States. By some estimates, China is already the leading global investor in ...

  • Official market forecast for South Africa’s Wind Energy Industry released

    2015’s official Wind Energy Forecast for the South African market was released today detailing the key market trends in 2015 for wind energy in in the country.  Leading experts from Vestas, Siemens, Barclays, and Green Cape discussed key questions facing this year’s wind energy market inside the 8 page report.  This January, experts ...

  • Measuring Offshore Wind Resources

    To select the right offshore wind site, estimate the future energy output of a wind farm, and determine the best layout for the turbines, project developers must conduct wind resource assessment (WRA) campaigns on site. This is a critical phase of the successful development of wind farms. WRA campaigns on terrestrial sites have traditionally been performed using meteorological towers equipped ...

  • Wind Generators as Role Models

    Advanced speed control methods are available for the regulation of wind generators. Working together with SET Sustainable Energy Technologies GmbH, Sulzer made use of one of these new concepts on pumps for the first time and implemented it with great success on a feedwater pump in a refinery. Unregulated pumps consume unnecessary drive energy when demand fluctuates. By controlling ...

  • Wind farms benefting the region

    Wind farms as close as Benton and White counties—and others around the world—are boosting Tippecanoe County’s economy by at least $20 million a year, reports Jody Hamilton, director of economic development for Greater Lafayette Commerce. “From land title searches to construction labor and turbine components, businesses in Greater Lafayette are enjoying new revenues, and that figure doesn’t ...

  • The Future Cost of Wind Power

    Chapter 1 The economics of wind power Wind power is capital intensive with most of the investment required upfront. The largest capital cost component is the turbine itself which can account for between 40% and 80% of the total capital cost of an onshore wind installation. Costs offshore are higher because of the more expensive operating environment and the greater difficulty establishing ...

  • Mapping the power of wind

    Online mapping solutions are playing a growing role in the search for wind farm locations, says Justin Saunders of eMapSite. MORE than a dozen renewable energy applications have been approved by the Scottish Government since May 2007 in what Energy Minister Jim Mather has called a “renewables surge”. This autumn’s opening of the Dalswinton and Minsca wind farms in Dumfries and Galloway is the ...

  • Positive developments in wind sector

    Ladies and Gentlemen, it is a pleasure and an honour for me to welcome you to this year's European Wind Energy Conference, which yet again brings together numerous policy makers, the wind energy industry and other market players. I would like to thank EWEA for the invitation to chair this opening session. Introduction Of all renewable energy technologies, wind energy has delivered the most ...

  • Drones for Wind Turbine Inspection

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Inspection Services for Wind Turbines: Global Market Assessment and Forecasts By the beginning of 2015, there were nearly 270,000 individual wind turbines operating globally. The more than 800,000 blades spinning on these turbines are battered by the elements over time and gradually wear out. Deterioration can cause reduced energy ...

  • Wind power growth in the US

    Last year was a banner year for renewable energy in the United States, especially for the wind industry. As the recent REN21 Renewables 2007 Global Status Report highlights, the industry broke all past global records, installing 5,244 megawatts (MW) of new wind energy capacity in 2007, or 30 percent of all new U.S. capacity added. This brings the cumulative national total close to 17,000 ...

  • Weather claims and wind safety

    Anybody working in the construction industry either here in the UK or anywhere else in the world is likely to know that the weather can present us with particular hazards. While rain, ice and snow are particularly dangerous to work in, we must always be aware that the wind is also likely to make conditions unsafe, particularly for those who work at height and those who ...

  • Wind Surpasses Nuclear in China

    Wind has overtaken nuclear as an electricity source in China. In 2012, wind farms generated 2 percent more electricity than nuclear power plants did, a gap that will likely widen dramatically over the next few years as wind surges ahead. Since 2007, nuclear power generation has risen by 10 percent annually, compared with wind’s explosive growth of 80 percent per year. ...
