    There is a lot to write on the role of the Dutch industry concerning the development of offshore wind, both nationally and internationally. However, when it comes to floating wind turbines the list of company names is significantly shorter. With relatively shallow waters it is currently more efficient to install wind turbines on fixed foundations […]

    MIT analysis suggests generating electricity from large-scale wind farms could influence climate — and not necessarily in the desired way. Wind power has emerged as a viable renewable energy source in recent years — one that proponents say could lessen the threat of global warming. Although the American Wind Energy Association estimates that only about […]

    German wind energy agency WAB has brought into question the results of a report recently published by WindEurope, saying that Germany’s offshore wind potential is around 21GW higher than stated in the report. According to the report, the potential of offshore wind capacity in German waters by 2050 accounts to some 36GW. However, WAB has […]

    Offshore renewable energy is evolving rapidly, with offshore wind being one of the pioneer sectors. Energy generated from offshore wind farms needs an efficient transmission system of subsea power cables to connect to the onshore network. Energy transmission networks can form the most expensive components of offshore wind farms. Setting aside the actual manufacturing and installation costs, the potential costs related to a […]

    Offshore wind is the mean of a reliable, intensive and abundant renewable energy. This relatively new source of electricity generation, which is capable to meet much of the populated coastal areas need for power around the world, has been also stimulating the development of marine economies with thousands of new jobs. Recently, offshore wind power […]

    Below, we bring an article on the UK’s offshore wind energy status and potential, written by Simon Watson, Professor of Wind Energy at Loughborough University, and originally published by The Conversation. In 1993, nine 300kW turbines were installed on the eastern pier at Blyth Harbour, near Newcastle on England’s east coast. One can question whether this […]

    It was 40 years ago, in the time of the international oil crisis, that some of the first initiatives were undertaken by, what the Dutch now would call, ‘goat-hair wool sock men’ taking a look at wind as a source for generating energy. Reason enough for one of these ‘pioneers’, Chris Westra, to organise a day where the […]

    Executive summary The development of offshore wind represents an interesting technology opportunity for the US. On one hand, offshore wind is a European invention, and early technologies will have to be almost exclusively imported from Europe. On the other, though, the rapid pace of technology development in offshore wind offers significant potential for the US […]

    The offshore wind industry, it would appear, has been plagued by schedules and budgets that have far exceeded expectations, a trend that will inevitably become less of a headline-grabber as more farms come on line and experience is gained. The oil and gas industry, after all, went through similar teething issues in its heady early […]
