News & in-depth analysis of wind power and renewable energy policy, legislation & regulation, pricing, tariffs & incentives, permitting and environmental issues.
A surge of offshore wind farm finance in 2020 set an all time record for the sector, smashing the old benchmark by more than 56%, new findings show
With the economic case for wind now beyond doubt, businesses and governments lined up to pledge net-zero targets and increased renewable energy deployment – which will have to go hand-in-hand with system integration measures. The final part of Windpower Monthly's review of the year looks at the policies, promises and projects
With strategies and targets now firmly in place, all it takes is to get the turbines installed, right? Wrong. Windpower Monthly explores what needs to be done to achieve Europe’s ambition in three decades
A climate bill that would have raised the state’s offshore wind target by an additional 2.4GW has been stymied by the governor on the grounds that cutting emissions by an extra 5% in the next ten years would cost $6 billion
A new Massachusetts bill would raise its offshore wind target by an additional 2.4GW
Newly installed wind and solar PV projects stopped receiving subsidies from 1 January 2021, and the change may impact some power producers more than others
Strategies are being drawn up, and investments made in renewable energy deployment. But this level of planning is missing for development of the grid needed to integrate increasing volumes of wind and solar
UK government green lights 2.4GW offshore wind farm after Ørsted reduced number of turbines and vows to build nesting schemes to protect birds
Wind power is now the largest renewable energy source in the US — with more than twice the installed capacity of solar PV. But with solar costs falling rapidly, how long can wind hold on to its lead?
With nine countries bordering the Baltic Sea, a number of cross-border projects are in the works, from transmission links to co-developing sites
As Europe looks to offshore wind to help reach its net-zero target, the Baltic Sea is set to see a big increase in construction over the next decade, with new markets entering the field
Comparing recent government studies with work by Imperial College shows need for more detailed work on predicting system costs with increasing amounts of renewables
By 2035, offshore wind will be cheaper than onshore, government predicts
