According to new statistics from the China Electricity Council, in 2012 China's wind energy production actually increased more than coal power production for the first time ever. China's installed wind power 'design' capacity may have exceeded coal, but when you apply the normal capacity factors of 30% and 90% respectively, actual new coal power generation still exceeds their wind power by a large margin. In terms of wider economic impact, . €�Developing With such enormous untapped wind resources offered through offshore wind production the potential power that may be harnessed will quadruple. Some quick history: Makani's creators several years ago came up with the idea of essentially combining kites with wind turbines in order to capture the strong and steady wind energy high up in the sky — too high for conventional wind turbines to capture. To achieve the cost effective goal Dagher's team had to innovate and create a new floating offshore wind turbine and platform design. @Accounting Guy While it's a good thing to see people constantly studying potentially better ways of utilizing existing technologies, we must also understand that there are very practical reasons that commercial wind turbines use the design that they currently do. While it is its present operation it will be used to gather data to help improve the design of future floating turbines. €�In Europe offshore wind turbines have a life of about twenty to thirty years. Vertical-axis wind turbines aren't as efficient as conventional ones—half of the time the blades are actually moving against the wind, rather than generating the lift needed spin a generator. The turbine design incorporates GE's Durathon battery technology with three software applications creating an intelligent system which enables power producers and the turbines themselves to make data-informed decisions. In a significant shift from previous years, the current tax credit grants $0.022 per kilowatt-hour to wind farms “under construction” by the end of 2013, rather than requiring projects to be “in production” by the end of the incentive's specified term. €�The secret to the air turbine design lies in using a fraction of the material necessary for a standard wind turbine. That's why this project for making a small wind power generator stood out to us. Over in western Michigan, wind OEMs can tap into a dense cluster of design and manufacturing firms focused on making high-quality turbine components. €�With rapid expansion of the Invenergy will be among the first power producers to be able to test the benefits of data-driven, turbine-to-battery communication aimed at predicting wind power production in 15-60 minute increments. This next generation of small wind turbines has been developed to provide clean energy even at low wind speeds, predominantly due to its super efficient design. The main purpose of a wind turbine is to generate energy and ultimately maximize energy generation from the local wind resource available. There are tons of Truth: The rotor is the “collector” in any wind turbine design. This is another significant step forward in the growth of the offshore wind power industry and it represents the first concrete-composite floating platform wind turbine to be deployed in the world.
