My colleagues make no attempt to hide that they present the wind power alternative as pessimistically as possible, writes Professor Magnus Korpås in this op-ed.
The first-ever offshore wind auction in the Gulf of Mexico attracted just two bidders. Just one of three available tracts are sold.
Plans are underway to electrify two oil platforms off the coast of Central Norway with electricity sourced from the mainland. Meanwhile, the government is exploring opportunities for offshore wind power near these platforms.
What makes water trees appear in some places on a subsea cable and not in others? This is one of the questions NorthWind spin-off project Ocean Grid is trying to answer about high voltage (HV) inter-array subsea cables.
Introducing a new concept that prevents bird collisions with rotating blades of wind turbines using control engineering.
Offshore HVDC grids will be a crucial part of the future energy system – Knowing what they cost is a crucial part of planning them.
Wind turbines have generated more electricity than gas for the first time in the UK. In the first three months of 2023, a third of the country’s electricity came from wind farms.
The US is falling behind Europe and Asia in offshore wind development. What ever happened to the industrious American energy that built the Hoover Dam in five years and the Empire State Building in less than two?
We have a long way to go before large amounts of offshore wind power can be efficiently channeled into the energy system. Lots of new technology and knowledge must be in place first.
Following the groundbreaking investment in climate technologies and solutions announced in the US Inflation Reduction Act, Europe has revealed its own strategy to stay globally competitive in the race to net zero.
