Index / Wind Energy / Installation Technology

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 →

Cecilia Jamasmie reports that Billionaire Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, has partnered with French energy utility Neoen to build the world largest lithium ion battery to store renewable energy in South Australia.

The mega-project consists of a 129 megawatt hours battery, paired with a wind farm, which aims to improve the security of electricity supply across South Australia. The state has been affected lately by several outages amid heat waves and storms. The worst, an eight-hour blackout last year, crippled industry for up to two weeks and triggered public outrage. The state prem... More →

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 →
