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.
Wind innovations Part 2 – Three (more) wind technologies you should know about
The transition to carbon-free energy takes many forms. Ground-breaking technologies are emerging to meet the growing demand for renewable energy.
Learning from one another – A new generation of hydrodynamic plain bearings for wind gearboxes
Learning from others and building industrial networks can often trigger groundbreaking innovation. In that vein, SKF and other industry leaders will gather at the Conference for Wind Power Drives (CWD) at the end of March to discuss and share developments and trends regarding wind turbine drivetrains.
Let’s talk innovation, reliability, and change – SKF at the ACP’s Operation, Maintenance and Safety Conference
By now, changes in the renewable energy industry are more than possible scenarios predicted by experts all over the world, they are real. To manage the challenges ahead, companies and stakeholders need to exchange knowledge and establish partnerships – by visiting events like the ACP OMS 2023.
North Sea synergy – Surrounding countries debating over expansion
Europe counts on offshore wind energy, especially from the North Sea, to achieve the objectives of the European Green Deal. Some of the bordering countries recently met to discuss the expansion and future development of the sea.
Heading Offshore – The recent boom in the expansion of offshore wind energy
Global offshore wind activity is on the rise. Since 2021 the number of related projects in the pipeline has never been higher. Experts are already speaking of a boom that is being driven primarily by China, the UK, and the USA. But is this development just a flash in the pan or is it here to stay?
