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, […]
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 […]
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 […]
