Renewable Energy Still Offering Good Return On Investment

Investment opportunities and returns in renewable energy has certainly seen an increase in the last few years. And while UK Government policies have become less supportive of the industry, we have still seen that both businesses and individuals have increased their investment in both win, solar, and other alternative sources of energy. That’s because, despite the UK reductions in the FiT, it still isn’t deterring continued investment in wind, solar, or other renewable energies. The scheme still provides a very strong internal rate of return, as well as support for major energy consumers in the context of increasing energy prices and reducing reliance on fossil fuels. […]

TransWind Set To Solve Global Wind Turbine Challenges

A common theme within the wind turbine industry is the perception that “bigger is better”. Over the years, engineers and innovators have continued to grow large wind turbines in order to harness as much wind energy as possible. However, building a bigger wind turbine isn’t the only way to gather a great amount of wind energy. After six years of intensive research and development, the TransWind wind turbine solution stands to break those perceptions, bringing the power of wind energy to all. Powered by “Super Vortex” blades, a uniquely designed blade that combines aerodynamic lift with flow resistance/deflection features, the TransWind is able to provide […]

Looking Towards The Future Of Wind Turbines

Wind energy is currently the fastest growing renewable energy industry in the world. And with the United Kingdom being the windiest country in Europe, it’s no longer surprising to encounter a 30-meter high pinwheel spinning in the breeze when you’re travelling through the country anymore. As wind energy continues to grow as a preferably renewable energy source, large wind turbines are popping up in more and more places around the country. And as their popularity grows, the technology around the turbines is changing – making them easier, more convenient and cheaper to manage – enabling more and more people to […]

How Does A Wind Turbine Work?

Wind energy is currently the world’s fastest growing renewable energy type and wind turbines are the main source for producing wind energy. Traditionally located onshore, as wind energy becomes more and more popular, wind turbines are being used in a number of different ways, including offshore, at large commercial wind farms, to even smaller developments and personal use. If you’re considering how a wind turbine can help you produce renewable energy, or you’re just curious how it works, here’s a simple explanation:   Simply put, a wind turbine works the opposite of a fan. Instead of using electricity to make […]

Small and Medium Wind Turbines Contribution To UK Power Supply

The wind power industry is currently undergoing a period of rapid globalisation and consolidation, with many start-up wind turbine manufacturers appearing to help meet global wind turbine demand. While many automatically think about the large turbines that are scattered in fields throughout the world, in order to meet demand and produce new wind turbine models as quickly as possible, it is the small and medium wind turbines that are shaping the industry. Small and medium wind industry comprises of turbines that have a capacity of up to 500kW. These turbines are typically single installations on either a farm, domestic property […]
