Renewable Energy to Power New Antarctic Research Station

Renewable Energy to Power New Antarctic Research Station

The International Polar Foundation (IPF) unveiled the final plans for Belgium's Princess Elisabeth Antarctic research station, to be built during the International Polar Year 2007-08 (IPY). The station will enable Belgium, and other nations participating in its science program, to carry on research on climate change and Antarctica's key role as part of the global climate system. And fittingly, the structure will be powered almost entirely through a combination of renewable energy technologies including wind, solar thermal, and solar photovoltaic.

Once Upon a Grime: A Solar Fairy Tale

PV and ME Question #4: “What’s so funny about solar?” Chapter 1: The Song of Solar and Coal Once upon a time, there was a mean, old utility-power mogul named Grimy Electric. A former general in the war against renewables, he was also known by his lieutenants as General Electric — ‘GE’ for short. ‘GE’ craved coal-fired power plants and detested solar.  […]

Vestas held a ground-breaking ceremony this week for its two new manufacturing facilities - a nacelle assembly factory and blade factory - in Brighton, Colorado. The Brighton factories are part of the manufacturing and research base Vestas is establishing in the U.S.
Wind to Power Research Base in Antarctica

Wind to Power Research Base in Antarctica

Eight wind turbines are en route to the South Pole where they will help provide power for Belgium's Princess Elisabeth Antarctic research station. Using wind turbines marks a major change in Antarctic stations, which have mainly relied on diesel generators because wind turbines were thought not to be sturdy enough for the harsh environment.

New Energy manufacturing can make the Midwest once again mighty

There is a very good chance federal funds are available for Jack to grow his beanstalk if he can show it will create jobs in the beanstalk growing industry. That Princess bothered so much by the pea can likely qualify for federal funding by creating a mattress testing business. And Ali Baba is a sure bet for one of the […]

U.K. Smart Grids Need Smarter Security, Says Expert

Open any energy industry journal, trade mag or website and one phrase will leap off the page: smart grids have dominated the conversation for generators, operators and commentators alike for years. And for good reason. As global population growth continues to accelerate in the coming decades, especially in urban areas, smart information and communication technologies will be at the forefront of the effort to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of utility systems and services – everything from power to water to transport.
Planning for the Challenges of Offshore Wind

Planning for the Challenges of Offshore Wind

Offshore wind is a new market; it has been just two decades since the first commercial installation. The sector was born mainly due to lack of space for the development of large onshore wind projects in the densely populated areas of Western Europe. The market first evolved in Denmark in 1991 with the construction of the Vindeby offshore wind farm. But real market growth came some 10 years later with construction of Middelgrunden, followed by Horns Rev, which became the largest true offshore project, located some 14-20 km offshore with a total installed capacity of 160 MW.
