Company Optiflame Solutions («Optifleym Solyushenz"), within the framework of implementing the "Skolkovo" project to create a new generation of small and medium-sized wind turbines closed in the past year has created a pre-production units for training to industrial production. As the head of Vladimir Kanin, traditional windmills open have a high level of potential danger and, therefore, are located mainly in non-residential areas at a distance. Wind turbines closed, equipped with turbine-like airplane, can be placed in any location, such as on the roofs of residential or commercial buildings. "This year, we made a working sample (1/2

International auditing company Ernst & Young in November for the first time in our country included the quarterly report Renewable Energy Country Attractiveness Indices, which collected data on the top 40 leaders of states that are most attractive for investment in alternative energy. Ukraine immediately took a rating of 32-th position, becoming the first of the five countries included in the ranking for the first time (other than us, it’s Hungary, Israel, Argentina and Tunisia), and ahead of such "old-timers" list as Austria, the Czech Republic and Chile.

New incentives

In assessing the level of

Google data center in Oklahoma wind farm will supply

Google data center in Oklahoma wind farm will supply Facts

Google and representatives of the Agency Grand River Dam (GRDA) signed an agreement for the supply of "green" wind power for Google Data Center in Oklahoma, USA. Energy supply will be from the nearby Canadian Hills wind farm of 48 MW. Cooperation will start at the end of 2012.

Google representatives said they began searching for ways to reduce and neutralize the carbon footprint of his unit in 2007. The most important point was to find a source of clean, renewable energy to power as many electronic operations

Excess wind energy to be stored in liquid form

Excess wind energy to be stored in liquid form Facts

As reported by the London organization of mechanical engineers, now do not have to use a special battery and hydrogen to store excess wind energy, obtained by wind farms. This function will perform liquid air.

The principle of operation of the new opening will be next. Electricity produced at night, for example, wind farms in Tehachapi California, will translate the cool air in a special cryogenic low-temperature state in adapted for the vacuum vessel. Once the windmill will need more energy to continue, liquid cold air will be

Flying wind turbines can replace ground

Flying wind turbines can replace ground Facts

No surprise that the force of the wind increases with the climb. That is why the makers of wind power are trying to place their turbines away from the surface which directly increases their effectiveness. But researchers want to go further and ensure that the wind was a leader in clean energy in the world and was able to satisfy the human need for electricity.

You must deliver the turbine at maximum height and figure out a way out the received energy will be supplied to the consumer, thus making the

The winds in the oceans have become faster, the waves — higher scientists have found

The average speed of the planet ocean winds in the years 1991-2008 increased by an average of 0.25% per annum and the maximum rate — by 0.75%, while the average height of the waves at high latitudes also increased, according to Australian researchers in a paper published in the the online version of the journal Science.

The team, led by Ian Young (Ian Young) from Swinburne University of Technology (Melbourne, Australia) analyzed a database compiled by altimeters geodetic satellites, starting with the U.S. GEOSAT, launched in 1985. From such data can be observed changes in the average wave height

Double threat in the form of tropical cyclones for the South East Asia

Double threat in the form of tropical cyclones for the South East Asia Weather and Climate

Close to the northern part of the Philippines and about. Taiwan was formed under the name of the next typhoon Dzhelavat. As the power of the system has increased significantly, a typhoon was granted the status of "supertyphoon."

By the beginning of the week the wind speed in the system reached 130 knots (234 km / h), but in order to get the meteorological supertyphoon status, must hold the typhoon wind speed of 130 knots at the surface of the water at

Hurricane Nadine goes to the Azores

Nadine hurricane heads for Azores Weather and Climate

In the eastern Atlantic, is expected next, the eighth hurricane of the season. At the time of his eye is formed over the Azores. Meteorologists are very surprised, because in 2012, the year it will be the second such storm in the same place, which contradicts the statistics.

Experts that monitor the state of Nadine, note that the system has reduced its activity to the level of a tropical storm and will maintain a minimum hurricane status until the middle of the week, despite the fact that the wind speed

The storm struck the southern U.S. state

The storm struck the southern U.S. state of Natural Disasters

On the north-east of the U.S. state Oklahoma swept devastating storm. Disaster victims are four state residents, including a child. The storm killed two adults and a child were replaced their house trailer, which did not survive the onslaught of wind and collapsed. The bodies of victims were found is not close to home, and in the harbor in about 50 meters away. It is surprising that two other children from the family left the trailer is just half an hour before the storm.

Another victim was found

In Scotland, built the largest wind farm

In Scotland, built the largest wind farm Facts

The project will be located at the northern coast of Scotland near Keytnesa and will provide about 40% of the required electricity for the region. The cost of the complex, which will contain 339 turbines in the area of 300 km2, will be £ 4,5 billion so new farm will be 50% more powerful than its counterpart in Kent, being the first among the farms built in the deep waters of the licensing of the "third circle" .

The total generating capacity of 1.5 gigawatts farm. The funny thing is
