Chilean energy company Colbun has applied for an environmental licence to build the largest wind project in Latin America.
The wind power industry has spent decades working on the design and manufacture of turbine rotor blades, refining its production processes to handle complex composite materials at ever-growing size and volumes.
Using data from Windpower Intelligence, we unveil five of the best performing markets from 2019 and how they are set to grow in the short term.
A floating demonstration project using an Ideol platform and currently being tested off Le Croisic on France's Atlantic coast, more than doubled its power production in the second half of 2019, exceeding expectations for production and availability, the company has reported.
The UK’s preparations for hosting the COP26 climate change summit in November are not exactly proceeding to plan. If, indeed, there is a plan at all.
Last October -- for the first time since the first power plant was fired up in 1882 -- the UK generated more electricity from renewable energy than from fossil fuels, an incredible milestone. And wind power is at the forefront of this increasing mix of clean energy.
Our annual energy costs analysis highlights the increasing price-competitiveness of wind energy worldwide. Onshore wind is generally cheaper than all other forms of electricity generation, with the exception of gas where it is most accessible, and solar PV in ideal conditions.
The prominence of Chinese machinery in our selection of the year's best new wind-energy hardware cannot be ignored. It is partly a result of the country's leading OEMs finally being prepared to share more details of their product developments.
