China is the world's biggest producer of CO2 emissions, but is also the world's leading generator of renewable electricity. Wind is the movement of air from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure. In fact, wind exists because the sun unevenly heats the surface of the Earth.
Offshore wind power or offshore wind energy is the use of wind farms constructed in bodies of water, usually in the ocean on the continental shelf , to harvest wind energy to generate electricity. Unlike the typical use of the term "offshore" in the marine industry, offshore wind power includes inshore water areas such as lakes, fjords and sheltered coastal areas, utilizing traditional fixed-bottom wind turbine technologies , as well as deeper-water areas utilizing floating wind turbines. At the end of , the total worldwide offshore wind power capacity was Other projects are in the planning stage, including Dogger Bank in the United Kingdom at 4. The cost of offshore wind power has historically been higher than that of onshore wind generation,  but costs have been decreasing rapidly in recent years and in Europe has been price-competitive with conventional power sources since Europe is the world leader in offshore wind power, with the first offshore wind farm Vindeby being installed in Denmark in In , the US Energy Information Agency said "offshore wind power is the most expensive energy generating technology being considered for large scale deployment".
Global Wind Day is a worldwide event that occurs annually on 15 June. It is a day for discovering wind energy, its power and the possibilities it holds to reshape our energy systems, decarbonise our economies and boost jobs and growth. On 15 June, the wind industry will celebrate the annual Global Wind Day, showcasing the growth and benefits of wind power in communities worldwide There is now more than GW of wind power capacity installed globally in 91 countries, with continued growth predicted as wind power is quickly becoming one of the cheapest energy sources Read more about Wind energy more important than ever to power economic development and achieve climate action goals […]. From niche technology, wind energy is now a global success story. The wind industry provides , quality high-skilled jobs in Europe.
After a storm drizzling rain over the San Francisco Bay Area Tuesday moves out of the region, a second system is forecast to sweep in Wednesday night, delivering more rain and breezy conditions. The winds are expected to kick up late Wednesday and will gradually steer more west to northwest into Thursday. The National Weather Service issued an advisory warning sustained winds could blow between 40 and 50 mph and isolated gusts could reach in excess of 60 mph. The advisory is in effect Thursday afternoon and evening for areas along the coast and the San Francisco Bay. Residents and people traveling in these areas should be wary of falling trees and power lines, power outages, and difficult driving conditions, especially if you're hauling a trailer.
According to a new research report by market research and strategy consulting firm, Global Market Insights Inc. The global offshore wind energy market has been set ablaze with a number of projects that have recently commenced power production. The Race Bank offshore wind farm in the U. This turbine facility is expected to produce MW of electricity and is capable of powering more than half a million homes every year. Considering the above-mentioned instances, there is no doubt that the fledgling offshore wind energy industry is finally reaching maturity, promising gigawatts of reliable and clean energy and billions in economic and investment opportunities.
Amsterdam, November 28, - GE Renewable Energy today announced it has more than 60, MW of onshore wind turbines installed across the globe. This significant milestone was passed thanks to large projects commissioned in North America as well as in Europe Turkey, Spain and Romania. The company has now installed over 35, turbines in 36 countries. We're looking forward working closely with our partners and customers to keep increasing the wind energy share in the overall energy systems globally. In recent months, the company has celebrated key wins that are expected to bring its installed base in Europe to over 13GW by the end of Europe is also a region where strategic partnerships have recently been announced for GE Renewable Energy.
