Wind Energy: 20 MW Turbines Feasible

20 Megawatt wind turbines are feasible, according to a new report, from the EU-funded UpWind Project, published March 15 at the EWEA 2011 Annual Event in Brussels. The UpWind Project explored the design limits of upscaling wind turbines to 20 Megawatt (MW) and found that they would have rotor diameters of around 200 metres, compared to some 120 metres on today’s 5 MW turbines.

COP16 should Encourage Low Carbon Energy Solutions without Delay: IEA

Cancún – The International Energy Agency (IEA) calls on countries worldwide to increase efforts to implement clean energy solutions. “Despite the positive steps taken last year in Copenhagen, we must achieve a lower emission path,” said Nobuo Tanaka, Executive Director of the IEA. The world is currently not on track with the ambitious target to limit global temperature increases at 2 degrees Celsius (°C) above pre-industrial level which was a key objective in the Copenhagen Accord.

New Process is Promising for Hydrogen Fuel Cell Cars, say Researchers

West Lafayette, Indiana – A new process for storing and generating hydrogen to run fuel cells in cars has been invented by chemical engineers at Purdue University. The process, given the name Hydrothermolysis, uses a powdered chemical called ammonia borane, which has one of the highest hydrogen contents of all solid materials, said Arvind Varma, R. Games Slayter Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering and Head of the School of Chemical Engineering.
