Wind turbines can be biodegradable

Organization "National Science USA" a group of scientists recently provided a grant in the amount of $ 1.9 million for the development of new technology, which will be produced by wind turbines of the future. Emphasis will be placed on the fact that very soon move to a more eco-friendly raw materials for the collection of turbines for wind farms.

Developers are truly Napoleonic plans as hoping to create a material that allows windmills be biodegradable. This will fulfill the dream of producing a zero ecological footprint, after all, energy production and plant for its production will be almost

Khakassia Reserve will be using renewable energy

The first hybrid power source, which consists of wind turbines and solar panels, appeared in one of the cordons Khakas Reserve on Lake Itkul, reported Tuesday on the website of the reserve.

According to ecologists having installation began in late September and took place in several stages. In November, began production of electricity needed to meet the needs of the cordon, home to four people (employees of the department of the reserve).

"The height of the mast where the solar panels and wind generator — about 17 meters. Output settings of up to 5 kW — that's enough to power

Ash dump on the Baltic power (Narva, Estonia) wind farm is built. The wind farm consists of 17 E-82 wind turbines with a capacity of 2.3 MW (total capacity 39 MW) manufactured by Enercon. Wind turbine rotor diameter of 82 m, the height of the column — 107 m rotor speed — 6 … 18 rev / min.

Units made gearless. If the speed is greater than 18 rev / min, wind generator automatically unfold in a situation in which the blades of the wind did not pick up.

The wind farm will annually

The share of electricity from renewable energy sources with the introduction of the new wind farm will exceed 4.5% in 2020

The total capacity of the announced projects in the field of wind energy in Russia is more than 10 gigawatts, their implementation will increase the share of electricity from renewable energy by 2020 to more than 4.5%, said the general director of "VetroOGK" (OJSC "Atomenergomash") Igor Bryzgunov.

According to him, the total capacity of the projects that are under development works, is not less than three gigawatts, and the total capacity of all the announced projects over 10 gigawatts.

"These figures suggest that in Russia to this day, many wind power projects (WEC), especially compared to the existing installed capacity
