Rain damage to wind turbines is a serious and potentially costly problem

A number of wind turbine companies are collaborating with the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) on a project to solve the problem of ‘leading edge erosion’ – a technical term that covers damage to turbine blades caused by raindrops. Every time a drop of rain hits a wind turbine blade it contributes to a process that ends in small cracks being formed in the leading edge of the blade that eventually ruin the coating on the blade. The bigger the . . . Complete story »

Danish wind output down over summer

Wind turbines in Denmark produced 1,657GWh in the two summer months, according to transmission system operator (TSO) Energinet – down from 2,167GWh in the same period last year. But output from coal, gas, solar PV and biomass combined was still lower than wind production in June and July, according to the Danish Wind Energyy Association (DWEA). The lack of Danish wind production was replaced by imports from Germany, Sweden and Norway, it added. Christian Kjær, director of the DWEA, said: . . . Complete story »

New energy agreement opens up for giant wind turbines on land

Wind turbines and wind power are increasingly being seen as vital to the move away from ‘dirty’ energy towards attaining the CO2 reduction goals that Denmark has set for 2030. One aspect of the new energy agreement, which was supported by a wide majority in Parliament last week, was a reduction in the number of turbines on land and more offshore wind farms. However, the agreement does not include any guarantees against taller wind turbines on land, reports Politiken. A . . . Complete story »

Over the last year, the media have published story after story after story about the declining price of solar panels and wind turbines. People who read these stories are understandably left with the impression that the more solar and wind energy we produce, the lower electricity prices will become. And yet that’s not what’s happening. In fact, it’s the opposite. Between 2009 and 2017, the price of solar panels per watt declined by 75 percent while the price of wind . . . Complete story »
