  • 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 ...

  • A legal discussion on wind energy

    There are several issues affecting the future of the US wind industry but what could be most important are the passage of a Renewable Electricity Standard (RES) and the future of the grid. Can the wind industry thrive or even survive without an RES? Who is going to control siting decisions for new transmission lines – federal, state or local authorities? And who is going to pay for these ...

  • US Department of Energy celebrates new DOE 1.5 research wind turbine

    Officials from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) have joined industry representatives and managers from DOE’s National Laboratories to celebrate the latest tool to advance the Department’s wind energy research: a state-of-the-art wind turbine installed at DOE’s National Wind Technology Center (NWTC), at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, near Boulder. The turbine, which is the first ...

  • DOE to invest up to US$33.5m in wind energy projects

    DOE announced on May 12 that it plans to provide Massachusetts with $25 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to accelerate the development of the state's Wind Technology Testing Center. Conveniently located in Boston Harbor, the new center will be the first commercial facility in the nation for large wind turbine blades. It will allow for the testing of blades longer ...

  • Offshore Wind Energy Sector off to Slow Start in US

    When the Obama administration cleared the way five years ago for the nation's first offshore wind farm to be built, advocates hoped it was the start of a new way of generating power along the East Coast. That project, Cape Wind's wind farm off of Cape Cod, has stalled. And construction has only just begun for another, much smaller, offshore wind farm near Block Island. Deepwater Wind's Rhode ...

  • 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 ...

  • Wind energy testing is a breeze for Vestas

    To increase their efforts in providing environmentally friendly power sources, Vestas has expanded its wind turbine testing capabilities. The Danish-based company recently purchased its second Hand Held Sound Analyzer (Type 2270) from Brüel & Kjær, which contains real-time analyzers, with 1/1 and 1/3-octave. These are supported by Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT) analysis for tone ...

  • No slow-down for global wind energy

    Global wind energy markets are expected to continue their rapid growth, with the world's wind power capacity increasing by 160% over the coming five years, according to the annual industry forecast presented by the Global Wind Energy Council today.
