Offshore wind energy systems could be a boon for marine life

Offshore turbines are able to function as artificial reefs, supporting marine life Offshore wind turbines could have a major environmental benefit that has only recently been discovered. Not only do offshore wind farms act as clean energy producers, they also serve as artificial reefs. There are many concerns regarding the impact that offshore turbines could be having of marine life, but some of these concerns may be unfounded. For seals, offshore wind farms may soon become a place where they can reliably find a meal. Hard structures attract mussels and…

World’s first floating wind turbine being tested off the coast of Maine

Uk renewable wind energy

Floating wind turbine testing begins The world’s first floating wind turbine is now being tested in the U.S. Engineers from the University of Maine are in charge of testing the new wind turbine, which will harness wind streams off the coast of Maine. The turbine is a new development for offshore wind. Typically, turbines that are used for offshore wind farms must be built or otherwise tethered to the ocean floor. The new floating wind turbine requires no such connection, which may make it more environmentally friendly than its conventional…

Federal government backs three major alternative energy projects that could shape the country’s future

Clean Transportation Success

The Obama administration announced last month, two new alternative energy projects that could help the nation reach its sustainability goals. The two projects are a solar initiative in Arizona, called the Sonoran Solar Energy Project, which will generate more than 300 megawatts of electricity and a wind project in California, called Tule Wind Project, which will generate 190 megawatts of electricity. Each project will occupy public land and will help modernize the nation’s energy grid as well as supply it with clean electricity. The federal government has also begun planning…

Sea Twirl wind turbine shows off innovative design – could make win energy more attractive in the future

Offshore Wind energy

Sea Twirl, an alternative energy initiative focused on wind power, has launched a new vertical axis wind turbine off the coast of Sweden. The turbine is one of the very few designs that diverge from the construct of traditional wind turbines. Sea Twirl’s offering to the world of wind power has only one moving part, making it much more durable than other models. The durability will come in handy as the turbine is designed to be set adrift off the coast of Sweden, where violent waters and storms are not…
