A new method boosts wind farms’ energy output, without new equipment

By modeling the conditions of an entire wind farm rather than individual turbines, engineers can squeeze more power out of existing installations. Virtually all wind turbines, which produce more than 5 percent of the world’s electricity, are controlled as if they were individual, free-standing units. In fact, the vast majority are part of larger wind […]

Digital solutions can make environmental impact assessment of offshore wind farms more efficient

With alarming climate change projections and geo-political instability in the traditional energy market, it is no surprise that governments across the globe are looking into accelerating their transition towards renewable energy sources. Offshore wind is a major component in this transition, but as offshore wind continues to develop as an industry, it is becoming increasingly […]
