IIASA researchers are taking part in a new Horizon Europe project that will create innovative tools to facilitate interaction between citizens and stakeholders, particularly around knowledge sharing, collaborative evaluation of impacts, controversies mitigation, and the social innovation capability of new onshore and offshore wind power deployments.
Offshore wind power offers a promising solution to the challenge of decarbonizing coastal China. China's coastal provinces, though small in land mass, are home to 76% of the population; they are also responsible for 72% of total national power consumption and 70% of total CO2 emissions.
A group of researchers at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis) are attempting to develop compostable, environmentally compatible wind turbine blades using bamboo and mycelium (a fungal rootlike network of hyphae that sprouts mushrooms).
Floating lidar deployment and comprehensive geophysical survey campaign to provide unrivalled visibility for consenting and engineering ahead of 2030 target.
Accelerating, enabling and supporting the rapid development of offshore wind will be front of mind at the First Nor-Shipping Offshore Wind Conference, with a diverse array of industry leaders centre stage to discuss the latest demands, innovations and segment trends.
A collaboration between Cambridge Vacuum Engineering (CVE), SSE Renewables, Sif Group, and TWI, has resulted in the first-ever electron beam welded section to be incorporated in an offshore wind turbine monopile foundation (transition piece).
The MIT Energy Initiative’s Spring Symposium highlights the vast potential of offshore turbines in decarbonizing the grid.
In February, England’s largest wind turbine was erected in Bristol. The Lawrence Weston wind turbine is 150 metres tall with a capacity of 4.2MW.
The name of a new research project headed by Dr Yilmaz Uygun, Professor at Constructor University in Bremen, is “Wind.EnergyAutonomous Schools in the Metropolitan Region Northwest.”
Greentech innovator, Katrick Technologies is developing an innovative new wind mapping software through its consortium with Edinburgh Airport and Heriot-Watt University.
