This new method of clean energy is unique in a number of ways. We currently have a lot of energy floating around and have only been able to harness a few sources well. I apprecaiate the innovative approach that this company took. I look forward to seeing other innovative clean energy technologies emerge as we [...]
Research from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology and University of Tokyo are revealing alternate designs from the typical vertical-style of offshore wind installations. Instead, using different types of floating platforms and turbines, researchers believe they can reduce the costs of installing Offshore Wind by roughly 50%. Additionally, researchers believe the cost of generating [...]
The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and AWS True Power, a wind energy consulting group, are developing an improved algorithm called WindSENSE to forecast wind energy contributions to the grid. This systems purpose is to improve the overall reliability of wind forecast contributions and better educate utility operators on how they can properly balance their electrical [...]
After seeing a map of offshore wind potential, Virginia does not reach out as a prime candidate for the limited climate dollars available. However, as seen at the Virginia Coastal Energy Research Consortium, there are a number of benefits to expand offshore wind to the Chesapeake Bay area surround Norfolk & Newport News.
The natural [...]
