  • Climate change brings ill winds for airline industry

    Global warming may already be taking its toll of air miles. As jet planes burn fuel and release carbon dioxide, the atmosphere warms and causes head winds to build up. Tail winds do too, but round trip journey times are nevertheless creeping up − and so are fuel costs. A team of US scientists say the cumulative effect of the longer flight times that they think may have resulted ...

  • Wind energy bumps into power grid`s limits

    When the builders of the Maple Ridge Wind farm spent US$320 million to put nearly 200 wind turbines in upstate New York, the idea was to get paid for producing electricity. But at times, regional electric lines have been so congested that Maple Ridge has been forced to shut down even with a brisk wind blowing. That is a symptom of a broad national problem. Expansive dreams about renewable ...

  • Wind Energy Update: Wind Farm O&M: Best Practice on Cost Containment

    O&M costs under-estimated On the basis of an exhaustive industry survey, Wind Energy Update finds that wind farm return on investment is around -21 percent. This underperformance is attributable to over-estimation of power production and underestimation of O&M costs. In the early days, the industry had costed out O&M at roughly 0.5c/kw over a turbine’s 20-year life. But as newer ...
