News & in-depth analysis of wind farms, project development, wind resource assessment, public consultation, site acquisition, permitting, construction, supply-chain contracts, and transport & logistics.
INDONESIA: The new renewables arm of oil and gas giant Total has signed a letter of intent with Indonesia's government-owned electricity provider to build a 70MW wind project on the island of Borneo.
GERMANY: Research and development institute Fraunhofer Iwes has launched a three-year study into the effect of rain erosion on wind turbine blades.
IRELAND: Senvion has won orders from two developers to supply wind farms in Ireland, after its market entry earlier this year.
FRANCE: Two companies, developing a floating wind project backed by the Environment and Energy Management Agency (Ademe) have filed permit applications to build, operate and connect their pilot site to the grid.
TAIWAN: Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has opened a new office in Taipei and signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Taiwan International Ports to help launch the country's offshore sector.
UK: Engineering consultancy firm Atkins has been appointed monopile designer for Innogy's CfD-backed Triton Knoll project in the east of England.
SWEDEN: Finnish concrete structure supplier Peikko will deliver gravity foundation technology for the first phase of the 650MW Markbygden wind farm.
SPAIN: Nordex will carry out its first repowering of a Spanish wind farm reducing the number of turbines at the site from 90 to 12.
WORLDWIDE: Technology such as thermal imaging and motion sensor-triggered warning noises are among scientists' attempts to minimise harm to birds and bats around wind farms. But much more research is needed, especially around animal behaviour offshore.
SWEDEN: Unlike its neighbour Denmark, Sweden is not often considered one of the boundary pushers of the wind industry, but with the completion of its latest, and largest project, it has broken new ground.
NORWAY/UK:The first commercial floating wind project is close to reality with the turbines mounted on their foundations in Norway and the tugboats ready for the voyage to Scotland.
WORLDWIDE: In recent months, subsidy-free bids have dominated headlines as wind continues to demonstrate its burgeoning competitiveness with fossil-based generation.
GREECE: Global Wind Day on 15 June celebrated the 500GW installed capacity milestone. Much of that is installed on wide open plains. However, sometimes the industry goes to extraordinary lengths to get to the best winds
