The cost of subsidies to the UK’s offshore wind farms in contracts awarded in auctions dropped more than 50 per cent and is now well below the price the government has guaranteed for energy from the planned Hinkley Point nuclear power plant. ► Subscribe to FT.com here: http://bit.ly/2r8RJzM ► Subscribe to the Financial Times on YouTube: http://bit.ly/FTimeSubs For more video content from the Financial Times, visit http://www.FT.com/video Twitter https://twitter.com/ftvideo Facebook https://www.facebook.com/financialtimes
Complete Premium video at: http://fora.tv/conference/chautauqua_energy_power Habib Dagher, Structural Engineering Professor at the University of Maine, describes the concept of offshore wind turbines that float in deep water. Currently, the only fully operational floating wind turbine in the world is located in Norway and serves as a model for a planned offshore wind farm in Maine. Ironically, engineers borrowed the design from floating oil and gas rigs. ----- Habib Dagher, the Bath Iron Works Professor of Structural Engineering at the University of Maine, is the founding director of the AEWC Advanced Structures and Composites Center. Established by the National Science Foundation in 1996, the interdisciplinary AEWC Center is a world leader in the development of cost-effective,...

The chance to visit a North Sea oil rig is one of those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. Not just anyone is granted access to these megastructures of the sea and admittance is a strictly guarded privilege. So, when ING Renault F1 Team third driver Romain Grosjean and demonstration driver Adam Khan were offered the chance to spend the day on one of TOTAL's flagship oil platform, they jumped at the opportunity.
Vindeby Offshore Wind Farm near Lolland in the south east of Denmark was constructed in 1991 as a demonstration project which was to prove whether it was possible to generate green power offshore. The world's first offshore wind farm was a great success, but after more than 25 years of operation, the Vindeby wind turbines were worn down, and DONG Energy therefore decided to decommission the wind farm.
PETERHEAD, SCOTLAND — Scotland's notoriously strong winds could pan out to be a blessing in disguise after the Scottish government recently approved plans for a floating wind farm right off of the Scottish coast. According to the Guardian, Statoil, a Norwegian energy company, plans to build a floating wind farm 15 miles off the coast of Peterhead, Scotland by the end of 2017. The floating wind farm, called the Hywind floating wind farm, will consist of five, 258-meter-high floating wind turbines. Each will have a floating steel tube filled with ballast as their base and they will be tethered to the seafloor by three moorings. Each of the five wind turbines will have a six-megawatt capacity, and together they will be able to power an estimated 20,000 homes. Because they're not actually ...
A wind farm is a group of wind turbines in the same location used to produce electricity. A large wind farm may consist of several hundred individual wind turbines and cover an extended area of hundreds of square miles, but the land between the turbines may be used for agricultural or other purposes. A wind farm can also be located offshore. Many of the largest operational onshore wind farms are located in Germany, China and the United States. For example, the largest wind farm in the world, Gansu Wind Farm in China has a capacity of over 6,000 MW of power in 2012 with a goal of 20,000 MW by 2020. The Muppandal Wind farm in Tamil Nadu, India is the largest onshore wind farm outside of China, with a capacity of 1,500 MW. As of April 2013, the 630 MW London Array in the UK is the largest...
Perdido is the deepest floating oil platform in the world at a water depth of about 2450 meters (8000 feet) operated by the Shell Oil Company in the Gulf of Mexico. The Perdido is located in the Perdido fold belt which is a rich discovery of crude oil and natural gas that lies in water that is nearly 8000 feet deep. The platform's peak production will be 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. At 267 meters, the Perdido is nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower.

ABB achieved an important project milestone by installing Dolwin beta, the world’s most powerful offshore converter station in the North Sea. The 320-kilovolt converter station, housed on an offshore platform, has a 916 megawatts (MW) power transmission capacity, making it the world's most powerful installation of its kind, enough to power more than 1,000,000 households with clean energy.The offshore converter station is part of the DolWin2 project which will be operated by transmission system operator TenneT and will connect offshore wind farms in the North Sea’s DolWin cluster, currently the largest offshore wind farm cluster worldwide, with the German grid. http://www.abb.com/cawp/seitp202/1FEB0F77B8682A0FC1257E9D002E4EF2.aspx
http://www.infineon.com/energy-efficiency - Energy means life: It heats houses, powers cars and lights megacities. The global appetite for energy is voracious, while resources are dwindling. One third of the energy consumed worldwide is electricity and the trend is rising. The name of the key energy source of the future is energy efficiency. Optimal electricity use is achieved by harnessing smart semiconductor technology: Innovative chip solutions fine-tune cars, industrial plants, consumer and household electronics to use less energy. And smart meters permit evaluation of every kilowatt hour with to-the-minute accuracy, helping to save electricity. The future of Wind Energy can be identified in offshore areas worldwide. Looking just at the North- and Baltic Sea, around 30 offshore win...
