  • New index to rank acceptability of onshore wind farms

    A new study has developed a scoring system that could help authorities approve proposals for onshore wind plants. It considered four aspects of a wind farm: the technical properties, the social impact, the environmental impact and the share of earnings offered as compensation for any negative effects. The EU climate change and energy package1 has set a number of targets to be met by 2020, ...

  • Floating wind sector urged to copy onshore manufacturing model to cut costs

    To compete on costs with fixed-bottom offshore wind and other renewables, the floating wind industry should industrialize the foundation in the same way it has manufactured and commoditized the turbines for onshore wind, according to Henrik Stiesdal, wind energy pioneer and former CTO of Siemens Windpower. Stiesdal told Wind Energy Update that a “quantum leap” on floater designs holds ...
