  • Energy answer: Blowing in the wind?

    When the federal government approved the Cape Wind project in April, allowing 130 power-generating turbines to be placed in the waters off Cape Cod, it gave a significant boost to the prospects of wind energy. The comparatively high costs of wind power, however, remain a problem. But in a study, MIT researchers have concluded that some of the price problems associated with wind power can be ...

  • Wind energy cuts the electricity bill

    The promoting of renewable energy is at the heart of the current debate on energy policy. From an economic perspective, the question focusses on determining the cost of the feed-in tariff systems. Firstly, whether the incentives are as expensive as has been maintained in the most recent regulatory modifications, and secondly, whether the effect is similar with respect to all renewable ...

  • Irish wind energy passes 1,000MW

    New figures suggest the amount of wind energy connected to the electricity grid on the island of Ireland exceeded 1,000MW over the course of 2007. Michael Walsh, chief executive of the Irish Wind Energy Association (IWEA), said that this was an important milestone on the road to a sustainable energy future for Ireland. He added that it had been made possible by investments worth more than Euro ...

  • Wind energy grows 45% in 2007

    The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) reported last week record growth in wind power generation with 5,244 megawatts of capacity installed in 2007 — a 45% increase reflecting $9 billion in investment and 30% of all new power generating capacity in 2007. 2008, however, will likely show growing pains as there is a current shortage of wind turbines, a situation that the AWEA sees as a big ...
