Power to liquid – Fueling up with renewable energy
What exactly are e-fuels? What role will they play in the greening of the economy? In this article, we’ll get a glimpse of how and where e-fuels are produced, wind farming’s role in their production, and how they can be deployed to make Europe — and the world — more sustainable.
Battling against the elements – How to effectively protect turbine blades
Protecting turbine blades is an ongoing challenge for the wind industry, and preventative measures are necessary to minimize downtime and lost energy production. This article details the common types of damage blades are vulnerable to as well as proper solutions to help prolong their lifespan.
Low carbon through recycled steel – How to achieve zero carbon emissions along the entire supply chain
Wind turbines consist of many materials including steel. The steel industry is one of the sectors that emit the most CO2 and is anything but environmentally friendly. The time has come to change that.
Looking back – Building a sustainable future with wind energy
Wind power has played a big part in reducing carbon emissions, confirms a recent study. Let’s take this opportunity to look at the big picture: How has the wind energy landscape developed since the construction of the first turbine? And what does the journey ahead look like?
Sunrise Wind transmission line – Powering New York with clean energy
The Sunrise Wind Farm, located off the coast of Long Island, is set to be one of the first major offshore wind projects for the state of New York. With a 25-mile transmission line connecting the proposed 924MW wind farm to an existing substation in Brookhaven, this ambitious public-private partnership is poised to transform the country’s renewable energy landscape.
The Gulf of Mexico – Driving the energy transition
Mexico and the USA are two countries that share the same goal when it comes to wind energy. Both want to massively expand their offshore wind power output in the coming years. And for that, they have the ideal location. A conjoint region that has recognized its wind potential and is becoming a frontrunner in the fight against climate change.
Wind power expansion – Coming soon to Iceland
In Iceland, a stiff breeze blows almost all day – yet there are hardly any wind turbines. That could soon change. Energy Minister Guðlaugur Þór Þórðarson has set up a task force to clear the way for wind energy.
A perfect fit – How bearings and seals are impacting wind energy generation
Manufacturers in the wind energy industry are under constant pressure to maximize power density by producing smaller, yet more reliable main shaft components without increasing costs. Learn what SKF does to make the grade.
