Index / Wind Energy / Installation Technology

Researchers from the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology of the UAE are developing novel, low-cost magnets with improved magnetic properties that can withstand higher temperatures to replace the expensive rare-earth magnets commonly used in automotive, aerospace, military and energy industries.

Dr. Behjat AlYousuf, Interim Provost, Masdar Institute, said that the novel magnetic materials that Masdar Institute researchers are discovering could support the development of next-generation clean energy technologies, including wind turbines, and have the potential to impact many ot... More →

Sarah Lozanova reports that there are now more than 45,000 wind turbines in operation in the U.S., and the installed capacity continues to grow quickly. The wind energy industry is, however, experiencing logistical issues that impact the bottom line and wind energy deployment. Although policy uncertainty continues to plague the renewable energy industry, overcoming transportation issues are a tangible way to help bolster wind energy growth by lowering costs and reducing delays.

Wind-turbine components are constantly increasing in size more than quadrupling over the last 30 years. Th... More →
