  • Wind Turbine Systems in China

    Demand for wind turbine systems in China is forecast to rise 5.3 percent annually through 2013 to ¥62.3 billion. Increases will be driven by a variety of factors, primary among them government policies that encourage the use of renewable and nonpolluting electric power sources such as wind. Such policies include favorable pricing of wind power generated from wind farms, tax incentives and ...


  • 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 ...


  • Wind Turbine Payback

    US researchers have carried out an environmental lifecycle assessment of 2-megawatt wind turbines mooted for a large wind farm in the US Pacific Northwest. Writing in the International Journal of Sustainable Manufacturing, they conclude that in terms of cumulative energy payback, or the time to produce the amount of energy required of production and installation, a wind turbine with a working ...

  • Are motorways the best spot for wind turbines?

    Wind turbine noise can be detected at low levels, even when it is heard alongside motorway traffic noise, a study finds. It is possible for louder motorways to drown out turbine noise, however. The participants in this listening experiment could easily detect wind turbine noise, but only once they knew it was present in recordings of environmental noise. Public annoyance with wind turbine noise ...

  • StatoilHydro inaugurates floating wind turbine

    “Today, we’re inaugurating the pilot facility which could help floating wind turbines to make an important contribution in the longer term to meeting the world’s big demand for energy,” says Margareth Øvrum, executive vice president for Technology & New Energy (TNE) in StatoilHydro. Hywind is a good example of the way StatoilHydro’s long experience from the offshore oil and gas business can be ...


  • `Anti-noise` silences wind turbines

    If wind energy converters are located anywhere near a residential area, they must never become too noisy even in high winds. Most such power units try to go easy on their neighbors' ears, but even the most careful design cannot prevent noise from arising at times: One source is the motion of the rotor blades, another is the cogwheels that produce vibrations in the gearbox. These are relayed to ...

  • New wind turbines at pixel revealed

    Grocon today unveiled new wind turbine technology atop its carbon neutral Pixel building in Carlton. CEO Daniel Grollo said there would be three wind turbines on the building's Green Roof, with the first installed only last week. 'These wind turbines have a vertical axis, meaning they spin around a pole, unlike wind turbines on wind farms with a horizontal axis,' he said. ...
