  • New way of predicting ice on wind turbines

    As wind turbines become an increasingly important source of energy, there is a growing need to better predict when ice forms on them and prevents electricity from being produced. A research project at SMHI has developed new methods for projecting ice formation on wind turbines. There is growing interest in wind turbines as an energy source in Sweden, but wintertime the turbines are affected by ...

  • The Global Wind Turbine Market, 2nd Edition - ReportsnReports

    The global wind turbine market experienced its first decline in over five years in 2010, dropping 15.9% to $42.3 billion as the pace of turbine installations in most countries slowed considerably. Total megawatts (MW) installed was down by 5.3% to 38,079 MW for 2010 and would have been much less if China had not taken a commanding lead in the market, installing almost half of all new global wind ...
