A Skoltech researcher has developed a theoretical model of wave formation in straits and channels that accounts for nonlinear effects in the presence of a coastline. This research can improve wave prediction, making maritime travel safer and protecting coastline infrastructure. The paper was published in the journal Ocean Dynamics.
A widespread field search for a rare Australian native bee not recorded for almost a century has found it’s been there all along – but is probably under increasing pressure to survive.
Ingeteam Wind Energy, the global specialist in wind energy drivetrain technology, announced that it has successfully secured framework contracts with key clients for the serial supply of its latest technology developments, including its new high power DFIG converters, as well as low and medium voltage full power converters. These agreements will secure the manufacture and supply of new generation and conversion equipment across its manufacturing plants in 2021 and beyond.
Power quality engineering specialists, Enspec Power Limited, today announced a new contract to provide Point-on-Wave switching relays for shunt reactors, and to conduct a grid compliance system study for the Neart na Gaoithe wind farm.
The oceans, constituting waves on the water, winds above the water and currents beneath the surface, offer immense energy potential.
ArcVera Renewables, a leading international provider of consulting and technical services for wind, solar, and storage projects, has received continued accreditation under recognized International Standard ISO/IEC 17025:2017 from the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) for ArcVera’s wind turbine power performance testing (PPT) services (Certificate Number 5339.01).
Environmental charity, Earthwatch Europe, has launched a new digital platform to support community wildlife projects called Naturehood. Designed to develop a network of thousands of local people who each do tiny actions for nature in their neighbourhoods, the aim is to create a tapestry of habitats that, combined on a national basis, will help protect and increase biodiversity in the UK.
Ingeteam, a global technology Group specialized in electric power conversion, presented today its advanced simulation models developed to address the complex grid stability and connectivity issues that come with the integration of wind power into global electricity transport infrastructures.
An innovative new Mersey barrage concept indicates how tidal energy projects can provide a number of advantages to society besides clean renewable energy.
With 72% of the earth’s surface covered by the ocean, wave energy, thus, possesses a significant potential to gratify a substantial percentage of the global energy supply. The task is to decrease costs and enhance the wave energy system’s performance. In that case, the Chalmers scientist Shun-Han Yang has aided the industry to optimize their positions.
