Offshore Wind Hydrogen Stations are the Future Energy Stations
This note is drawing the vision of Offshore Wind Hydrogen Stations. This is something that could potentially become our future energy stations far inside the seas. This vision is combining two of the most trendy business models, Offshore Wind and Green Hydrogen Production. Having this combination together enables higher feasibility and bankability while eliminating their […]
What is Green Hydrogen?
Hydrogen is definitely the trend of the day as the fuel of the future, and yes there is a lot of buzz around it. In this note, we will try to clarify what is Green Hydrogen & why is it so important. and why at this point in time it is not where it should […]
How Much Does a Wind Turbine Cost?
Commercial wind turbines onshore or offshore have different associated costs. Whereas, offshore wind turbines or wind farms cost high as compared to their onshore counterparts. On the other hand, residential wind turbines cost a few thousand dollars per kilowatt capacity. For different types of installation locations, the cost differs accordingly. The onshore installations have lower […]
How Does a Wind Turbine Work? What Are Its Components?
The way a wind turbine works is the opposite of a rotating motor. While in a motor, the energy is consumed, but in a wind turbine that energy is generated in the form of electricity from rotating blades. Including wind, in most other technologies (non-renewable and renewable), rotating generators are the main electricity generation component, […]
Offshore Wind Farm Communication, stability starts with monitoring, control & predictability
The electric power generated by Wind Farms in addition to Solar Farms is the most proven green technology available to date. However, the power scale of wind turbine generators, in addition to the land footprint makes Wind Power even more attractive, especially when taken out of sight offshore. Like for every other critical asset, Offshore […]
Global Wind Energy Installation in 2021 at a Glance and Market Outlook up to 2026
Introduction Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, 2021 was a fantastic year for renewable energy installations. There was a 9.1% increase in renewable energy addition in that year over 2020. The biggest slice was grabbed by solar energy with 133 GW , followed by around 93.6 GW of wind energy  and 19 GW of hydropower. According […]
The Largest Offshore Wind Farm in the World with More than 1200 MW Capacity
2021 was a brilliant year for renewable energy installation, especially wind energy despite the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic. The wind industry has enjoyed its second-best year ever, in 2021 after 2020’s record, 95.3 GW . Although the onshore wind has the leading role in the wind energy market, offshore wind has had a […]
Introducing Different Types of Offshore Wind Turbine Foundations: Fixed and Floating
Offshore wind has gained traction and is one of the biggest movers in the energy industry due to a drastic fall in prices in the last few years, as the size of wind turbines grew, increasing output, and the technology of providing the footings and connections have improved . As a good example, only in […]
Introducing Some of Wind Turbine Generator’s Technical Specifications
Introduction to wind turbine generators Wind turbine Generators work on a simple principle: instead of using electricity to make wind—like a fan—wind turbines use wind to make electricity . In a wind turbine generator, propeller-like blades spin around a rotor, spinning a generator, which creates electricity. As the wind blows across the rotor blades, a […]
