A new design for gigantic blades longer than two football fields could help bring offshore 50-megawatt (MW) wind turbines to the United States and the world.
Siemens AG, maker of trains, power turbines and medical machines, says net profit rose 42 percent in the company's most recent quarter compared with a year earlier.
A thin coating of graphene nanoribbons in epoxy developed at Rice University has proven effective at melting ice on a helicopter blade.
Reports of bat deaths worldwide due to human causes largely unique to the 21st century are markedly rising, according to a new USGS-led analysis published in Mammal Review.
Lightweight components offer the aerospace and automotive industries the means to reduce energy consumption and emissions through the development of lighter vehicles, and provide other industrial sectors with flexible materials ...
Upward lightning strikes initiate on the ground and head skyward. These discharges, which usually begin at the top of tall and slender structures, pose a real risk for wind turbines. An EPFL study analyzes the mechanisms ...
The Wachau, a picture-postcard river valley in Austria, makes a lot of wine. Soon it could be producing its own electricity too, and in a way that will not spoil the stunning views.
Using methods developed by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, wind farms can now be designed to minimize their effects on television broadcasting and mobile communications.
Harnessing the power of wind has long been recognised as an important alternative source of electricity generation. Now, a new European project is aiming to improve the technology and make it even more competitive
Researchers at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) have designed and patented a floating platform for offshore wind turbines that can reduce energy costs ...
