UK’s massive wind turbines are setting the course for a cheap-energy future

They’re more like bigbines.

Nobody is going to make coal great again, says Bloomberg New Energy Finance founder

Sorry, bro.

Earlier this month, California broke yet another green record using over 67% renewable power

Woob woob!

Wind energy could generate a quarter million new jobs by 2020 in the US alone, and an economic impact of $85 billion

America’s largest renewable energy source will continue to add a lot of new jobs in the coming years.

Flapping wind turbine mimics hummingbird to produce electricity

One odd design is being tested out in Tunisia right now.

Renewables just surpassed coal as the largest source of new electricity

It’s been a long and crazy ride, but coal’s time seems to be finally fading away.

China covered all its new energy demand with renewables in 2015 — and there was still plenty left to spare

Power from thin air. Lots and lots of power.

Why the first, tiny offshore wind farm in the U.S. is a huge step forward

These five turbines signal a change through out the country.

Eerie musical instruments played by the wind from around the world

A wind or Aeolian harp is exactly what the name implies: the only musical instrument played by the wind.

Saturn’s Moon Titan has Strong Winds and Hydrocarbon Dunes

New experimental research found that Saturn’s largest Moon, Titan, has much stronger winds than previously believed. These rogue winds actually shape the hydrocarbon dunes observed on its surface. Titan is, along with Earth, one of the few places in the solar system known to have fields of wind-blown dunes on its surface. The only other ones are Mars and Venus. Now,

California’s storm depicted in a brilliant animation

What you see above is a rendering of California’s winds, as derived from data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data and rendered in Web developer Cameron Beccario’s “Earth.” The website showcases a brilliant depiction of global winds, and I highly recommend you checking it out. Truly breathtaking!

How much area would be required to power the world (with solar panels alone)

I came across this particular pic which really made me think. I don’t know if they did the math right, but if they did, with a surface as big as the plastic island floating around in the Pacific covered with solar panels, the whole world could be powered. If we consider other sources of clean energy (hydro plants for example),

Oregon prepares for the larges wind farm in the world

Renewable energy has found a considerable support in wind farms, as more and more people seem to be adopting this green and cheap solution as a better alternative towards traditional energy. For example, Samsø, an island near Denmark, gets all its energy from renewable sources; the huge number of wind farms in which are being built is also a good
