More offshore wind energy is likely to reduce turbine efficiencies, but still a lot of renewable energy can be generated. This is what a new @AgoraEW study shows to which we contributed.

Winds over the ocean typically have higher wind speeds, resulting in high efficiencies of wind turbines and making this an attractive environment for generating a lot of renewable energy.  But how efficient are turbines going to be when offshore wind farms become larger and larger? Continue reading “More offshore wind energy is likely to reduce turbine efficiencies, but still a lot of renewable energy can be generated.

Making sense of German wind energy

I thought it might be a good idea to meet with wind energy critics to hear what they have to say. But my experience told me otherwise. Perhaps I should have been warned. They are associated with a German organization called „Vernunftkraft“, which has „sensible“ in its name. How presumptuous! It should have been a red warning flag for me. Continue reading “Making sense of German wind energy”
