Computer to simulate harbor porpoises
Researchers at Aarhus University, Denmark, use a computer model to predict the impact of new offshore wind farms on the population of harbour porpoises in the North Sea. A consortium of international energy ...
Google buys up Dutch wind energy for data center
Google says it will buy the entire output of an 18-turbine, 62-megawatt Dutch wind energy project in the Netherlands to supply power to a major data center it is building.
Sociologists describe community support for wind farms
Harnessing wind as a powerful source of renewable energy in the Midwest means coming to terms with a landscape dotted with wind towers.
On-site fabrication process makes taller wind turbines more feasible
Wind turbines across the globe are being made taller to capture more energy from the stronger winds that blow at greater heights.
Muons help understand mechanism behind hydrogen storage
It is ever more necessary to find alternative ways to store energy. Energy storage is required when energy is supplied intermittently, as for instance for wind power, or for mobile applications like cars. Hydrogen is a promising ...
Sources of the solar wind
The solar chromosphere is the region between the Sun's surface and its hot, million-degree corona. Within this complex interface zone, only a few thousand kilometers deep, the density of the gas drops by ...
