As developments in Europe drive down installation costs, the US is eager to get clean energy.
They’re more like bigbines.
America’s largest renewable energy source will continue to add a lot of new jobs in the coming years.
One odd design is being tested out in Tunisia right now.
It’s been a long and crazy ride, but coal’s time seems to be finally fading away.
Power from thin air. Lots and lots of power.
These five turbines signal a change through out the country.
A wind or Aeolian harp is exactly what the name implies: the only musical instrument played by the wind.
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,
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!
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),
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
