Christened, the “Esvagt Faraday”, Siemens’ new SOV, is now in operation on German offshore wind farms. Ingo Bischof, Project Manager for the Butendiek wind farm in the North Sea, has just returned from a trial tour of duty. He explains what it’s like to live and work aboard the new service operation vessel. read more
The ENESSERE Hercules wind turbines use design to change perceptions of green energy. The post Smart wind turbines for family homes that look good, too appeared first on Springwise.
Gamesa has secured an order to set up the first wind energy project in Kuwait. The order is also Gamesa’s first wind energy order in the Middle East. Gamesa will supply 5 units of G97 turbines with 2 MW capacity each for the Shagaya Renewable Energy Park. Show More Summary
Use it to charge your home, your car, or your phone battery.
The United States has fallen behind on offshore wind power, experts say. Their findings show that while offshore wind turbines have been successfully deployed in Europe since 1991, the U.S. is further from commercial-scale offshore wind deployment today than it was in 2005.
Thanks to an increase in solar panels and wind turbines, as well as a particularly sunny and windy quarter, renewable energy has supplied a record 25% of the UK’s energy mix in Q2 2015, leapfrogging coal for the first time to come into second place behind gas fired electricity. Show More Summary
Israeli Company Building First Wind Turbine Farms in 30 Years; Israel’s first wind farm was built 30 years ago in the Golan Heights September 25, 2015 (JNS News Service) “…[Israel will see, for the first time in 30 years, new wind installations...Show More Summary
Available in a range of sizes, the Trinity wind turbine can charge your phone while camping or provide electricity for your entire home. When we think about energy efficiency on the go, solar-powered gadgets are typically the first to jump to mind. Show More Summary
The Trinity portable wind turbine power station is a powerful and portable clean energy device being offered in four different sizes that range from a small 50 watt unit for powering personal devices to a 2,500 watt version that can power a home. The unit can break down to be moved easily and adjusted for […]

Janulus, a Minnesota-based company, launched a Kickstarter yesterday for its new product, a portable wind turbine called Trinity. As of today, it has already surpassed its $50,000 goal and is still climbing, currently up above $64,000. The turbines rely...
A key point of contention against wind (and solar) farms is that they require much larger amounts of land to generate the same amount of electricity, an important downgrade of their "greenness" that goes conveniently ignored. Wind power is naturally intermittent, and plants typically operate at about 25% of full [...]
Think of wind turbines and massive blades spinning above Kansas prairies or off Danish coastlines are probably what comes to mind, but Minnesota-based Janulus has developed something a little more portable. Having found crowdfundingShow More Summary
It's easy to understand why renewable energy receives most of the press. Photos and videos of sunsets reflecting off solar panels, or wind turbines spinning across a scenic field, make for great and compelling imagery for reporters to use in their articles and TV reports. Show More Summary
Four sizes of micro-turbines, designed to be portable personal wind energy stations, are in the works from Janulus.
When wind speeds are higher than a turbine can effectively use, the extra energy is stored for when the wind slows.
Plugging into renewable energy is a challenge for many of us. Despite the rapidly falling cost of solar panels, there are many green-minded folks who don’t own a roof to install them on. Wind energy is an option in lots of areas, but a similar problem
In three years, all Dutch electric trains will be powered by wind turbines, either turbines in the Netherlands itself or in nearby Belgium or Scandinavia.
Danish wind giant Vestas have introduced a new turbine engineered for high performance at low wind speeds — the V136-3.45 MW. According to Vestas, the technologies engineered into its new turbine enable it to increase annual energy production by more than 10% compared to its predecessor, the V126-3.3 MW. Show More Summary
