With a steadily increasing efficiency, wind power (both onshore and offshore) is proving itself to be a cost-efficient source of electricity generation for a Continue reading Top seven countries by wind power capacity
Oil giant BP has published its annual Statistical World Energy Review for this year, and revealed that 17% of global energy growth came from renewable sources.
This year’s increase is the largest ever for renewables. Equivalent to about 69 million tonnes of oil, it would be enough to meet the energy demands of both Denmark and Sweden combined.
While wind power has been growing rapidly in the UK—driven by better economies of Continue reading BP’s annual energy review shows big jump for renewables
German energy company Uniper has launched a new pilot scheme to make use of wind power by converting it into methane gas.
Wind power across Europe is growing rapidly, and the industry continues to make advancements in production, efficiency, and lubrication, such as from the advanced wind-power lubricants available through Continue reading Germans trial converting wind power into gas
Recently published government figures reveal that wind power met 14.7% of the country’s total demand in 2017, setting a new record.
It was also a good year for renewables in general, with renewable sources—including bioenergy, hydro, solar, and offshore and onshore wind—meeting almost Continue reading UK wind power sees another record high
The UK Government has held its reverse auction for energy production subsidies, and offshore wind power has come in cheaper than Continue reading Offshore wind power now cheaper than nuclear
Top treating is the practice of adding new additives to existing oil. Once condition monitoring detects a depletion of Continue reading Why top treating isn’t always a good idea for wind turbines
Wind power may be on the rise, but it’s not something new. People have been harnessing the power of the wind in one form or Continue reading The early history of wind power
There’s an undeniable trend towards making wind turbines larger in order to cut costs. This is especially relevant to Continue reading Designing the world’s largest wind turbine
