  • FLOWSTAR-Energy forecast for wind turbine

    CERC are providing forecasts of hourly power output for an operational wind turbine in a rural area near Inverurie, Scotland (see the map) for up to 4 days ahead. The predictions enable the turbine owner to plan energy usage. An example is shown in the figure. The live forecasts can be seen at the bottom of the CERC home page. The forecasts are calculated using our own ...

  • CERC applies new FLOWSTAR-Energy model to assess impact of proposed wind farm

    CERC was recently commissioned to carry out an assessment of the impact of two proposed large wind turbines on the wind energy yield of an existing smaller wind turbine in the neighbourhood of the proposed site. The assessment used FLOWSTAR-Energy to model the impact of the proposed wind turbines on the local flow and turbulence including the effect of the local topography. The picture shows ...

  • Cassini Spacecraft and Ground Telescope See Violent Saturn Storm

    NASA's Cassini spacecraft and a European Southern Observatory ground-based telescope tracked the growth of a giant early-spring storm in Saturn's northern hemisphere so powerful it stretches around the entire planet. The rare storm has been wreaking havoc for months and shot plumes of gas high into the ...

  • Climate research targets Western wildfire smoke

    Researchers are flying over Western wildfires to sample the thick smoke they emit and study its role in cloud formation and climate. The data-gathering campaign is intended to help scientists flesh out one of the least understood areas of climate: the role of aerosols, or particles given off by wildfires, and how they evolve over time. Biomass burning, such as forest fires and agricultural fires ...

  • Renewables 2011 global status report

    The REN21 Renewables 2011 Global Status Report released today shows that the renewable energy sector continues to perform well despite continuing economic recession, incentive cuts, and low natural-gas prices. In 2010, renewable energy supplied an estimated 16% of global final energy consumption and delivered close to 20% of global electricity. ...

  • EU climate chief says UN talks hinge on 2015 deal

     After another U.N. climate conference gave only modest results, European Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard says the process needs to provide a "substantial answer" to global warming in two years to remain relevant. Even if it succeeds, it's worth reconsidering whether the international confabs need to be held every year, and whether the scope of each session should be narrower, ...
