Wind energy giant Gamesa is teaming up with Spanish multinational utility Iberdrola to launch a next-generation system for operating wind farms from a distance. The system allows for remote management of any make of wind turbine, anywhere in the world, through a single interface. Show More Summary
The wind turbine has received some of the most heated and angry opposition any technology has had to endure in many years, and as we continue to study the effects of wind turbines and wind farms as a whole, we continue to discover that all of this negative attention has been misplaced.

I love writing about the coolest cleantech solutions on the planet — solar panels, wind turbines, learning thermostats, LEDs, and electric cars. However, there are a lot of improvements you can make in your home to cut your energy use to a large degree. Show More Summary
German wind turbine maker Nordex is mulling paying a dividend for the first time since listing on the stock exchange as part of efforts to create a long-term investor base,
This Cool Site of the Day (for 12/10) is AltaAeros Energies (#altaeroswind), a kickass awesome way to harness big wind power in a mobile, low power way. The Altaeros Buoyant Airborne Turbine (BAT; pictured above) leverages aerospace technology to lift a wind turbine into the winds beyond the reach of traditional towers (amazing). Show More Summary
This is what the air flow around a vertical-axis wind turbine looks like. Created by researchers at Caltech, these flow visualizations allow engineers to work out where to place new turbines—to make sure they're both safe and efficient. Read more...
