A new study led by The University of South Australia indicates tens of thousands of wind turbine blades will end up in landfill by the end of the decade unless end-of-life programs are established soon.
UNSW Sydney Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Attila Brungs opened the Talpero Lookout interpretation area in Sturt National Park, near Tibooburra in far western NSW on Saturday.
Octopus Energy Group’s generation arm, one of the largest investors in solar and wind energy in Europe, has signed its first renewable generation deal in Germany, helping to boost the country’s energy security.
When the power grid goes down, there is a stepwise recovery process–a so-called “blackstart” that until now has relied on power from gas or hydro turbines spinning away within a power plant.
There is an increasing need for energy storage technologies to guarantee that electricity supply and demand are balanced correctly. This happens with the quick decrease in the costs of renewable energy generation, like solar and wind power.
Renewable energy company, Katrick Technologies has designed a unique panel system for harnessing wind power to produce sustainable energy.
When an offshore wind farm pops up, there is a period of noisy but well-studied and in most cases regulated construction. Once the turbines are operational, they provide a valuable source of renewable energy while emitting a constant lower level of sound.
Tracking silky sharks has revealed them to be swift swimmers. But they’re also one of the most heavily fished sharks globally. Will expanded marine protection in the Tropical Eastern Pacific go far enough to protect these long-distance swimmers?
The new regulatory framework (Energy Efficiency eXisting ship Index - EEXI) around CO2 emissions for existing shipping come into force in January 2023 and many ship owners are now considering how to meet these through either operational changes or technical alterations.
A huge share of the energy landscape has been occupied by wind energy, which comes with a growing conviction on the intermittent nature of wind.
