A new study conducted by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has found that there is more than enough power in our planet’s winds to be a primary source of near zero emissions, but that also the power generation necessary to support current and future demand would not substantially affect the climate. Climate scientists and collaborators […]
A new study has suggested that wind farm operators could come to better understand the amount of power being generated at any one time by looking to the stability of the atmosphere for clues. The energy generated by a wind farm, as expected, is very much at the mercy of wind speeds. However, the shape […]
New research into the effect offshore wind farms have on the local habitat have provided striking results, given many of the assumptions made about such wind farms without scientific evidence. According to scientists, a wind farm in the North Sea actually has a beneficial effect on the local fauna.
A new study by scientists from the Indiana University Bloomington shows that the production of wind energy in the United States of America will not be greatly affected by the climbing temperatures.
