EU electricity market reform – Another push towards renewable energy
Earlier this year, the European Commission introduced legislative initiatives aimed at improving European electricity market design and enhancing protection against market manipulation in the wholesale energy market, accelerating the transition to renewable energy sources. The reforms are particularly important for the wind industry since they create a more favorable and supportive environment for the growth and integration of wind power.
Port of call – Navigating the future of offshore wind farming
The role of ports in offshore wind farming cannot be underestimated. As we transition from the use of hydrocarbons to renewable energy, the wind industry seeks to maximize optimization of portside facilities. It will achieve this by continuing to identify favorable portside locations and lobbying for change at TENT-T.
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.
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?
5 ways to transform the world – Building a sustainable energy future with wind
The urgent need to transition to renewable energy sources has never been clearer. Sustainable technologies are already cost-effective but making them the world's main energy source requires additional action. In this article, we look at five changes that are inevitable to achieve a cleaner, greener future.
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.
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?
Africa’s huge wind potential – Electricity shortage in Africa: Gone with the wind?
In many parts of Africa, people still live without access to electricity. Although recent studies have shown the potential for renewable energy on the continent, electrification is proving to be challenging. In remote regions especially, the infrastructure is lacking.
