  • Power Electronics for Wind Turbines

    In 2011, almost 44GW of wind energy has been installed in the world and half of it was in China. Each years’ results are greater than predictions, and it has been so for the last 10 years. But we envision a slow down in this growth, fully explained in this report: 22% annual growth is huge. Based on the history, we believe the market will stay between 15% and 20% growth until 2015. Compared ...

  • Offshore wind industry working on a new power class

    The offshore wind industry is gearing up for the next turbine generation despite uncertainty about Germany's future political and economic environment. Far from being modified onshore machines, these turbines will be specifically designed for the offshore market in the next-higher power class of 7 to 10 MW. "Investors want technology that lowers their energy costs and makes offshore projects more ...


  • 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 ...
