Floating solar park North Sea

A consortium of six Dutch organizations parties is developing an unique project: the world’s first floating solar park at sea. The ‘solar ísland’ should be a solution for locations where land surface is scarce, such as islands.

Utrecht University will investigate the energy production of the floating solar park. The park is located about 15 kilometers off the coast of The Hague on the North Sea.

Floating wind farm Scotland

Floating wind farm Scotland

Thick mooring lines will tether the towers to the sea base. The turbines can operate in water up to a kilometre deep

World’s first floating wind farm emerges off the north-east coast of Scotland (UK). Over there, the waters are too deep for conventional bottom-standing turbines. That’s why manufacturer Statoil has chosen this floating technology. It’s a pilot for more deep ocean regions in the world like the west coast of the US en coasts of Japan.

“It’s a game-changer for floating wind power and we are sure it will help bring costs down,” said Leif Delp, project director for Hywind.

WaterSeer produces water from air

WaterSeer produces water from air

WaterSeer can pull up to 11 gallons of water from thin air

WaterSeer is the name of the turbine that can produce water from air. The WaterSeer could generate up to 11 gallons a day.

VICI-Labs, together with UC Berkeley and the National Peace Corps Association, have developed a wind turbine that could produce clean water from thin air 24/7. Read More

Invelox wind turbine, does it work?

Invelox wind turbine

In April, three generators will be placed in the narrowest part of the funnel: the place where the wind blows six times as hard, according to inventor Daryoush Allaei.

The Invelox wind turbine on the roof looks like a Vuvuzela, popular and hated at the World Cup in South Africa in 2010.

Michael Dubelaar hopes that it will be an alternative to the classical wind turbines. Recently, NedPowerSWH has installed a prototype.  Read More

Kite power game-changer

Kite power game-changer

This large kite generates green energy from the wind, connected with a cable on the ground

Enevate developed a game-changer in the wind energy sector: Kite power energy

This is great Airborne Wind Energy. The kite power is a cost-effective alternative to existing wind-power turbines.

The patented technology uses 90% less material while being twice as efficient as existing technologies.

SheerWind Invelox windtube

SheerWind Invelox windtube

This system of capturing, concentrating, accelerating, and harvesting wind power in a funnel is a patented system we call INVELOX™

The SheerWind technology seems to be a cost-effective, high-performance alternative to conventional wind technology. Look at this trending new wind turbine. 

According to Dr. Daryoush Allaei, founder of SheerWind, the industry is looking at the problem the wrong way.

Current wind turbines are really only an optimized step beyond the old sail based windmills of Europe, passively waiting for the appropriate wind. Read More

Promising Low-Noise Wind Turbine

Promising Low-Noise Wind Turbine

A Promising Low-Noise Wind Turbine was launched at the WindEnergy Hamburg trade show by Siemens which was inspired by the silent flight of the owl.

A Promising Low-Noise Wind Turbine was launched at the WindEnergy Hamburg trade show by Siemens.

The low-noise wind turbine was inspired by the silent flight of the owl.

Promising

Siemens unveiled the SWT-3.3-130LN wind turbine, which operates at a reduced rotor speed and includes aerodynamic add-ons to its rotor blades which mean the turbine can be operated at a noise level of only 104.9 decibels. Read More

Lockheed Martin designed giant 50 MW wind turbine

Mega turbine blades for more wind mill, green energy

Mega turbine blades for more efficiency. At dangerous wind speeds, the blades are stowed and aligned with the wind direction, reducing the risk of damage

Sandia Lab (US), part of Lockheed Martin, has designed mega wind turbine blades for offshore wind mills.

The turbine blades do have a length of 200 meters: More than two times longer than the longest turbine blades which usually provide green energy from wind mills on land or at sea. Read More
