The future of wind farms is vertical , striking new study claims

Vertical wind turbines are found to be more efficient than horizontal ones.
SNIPPET:

It’s the first study to comprehensively analyze many aspects of wind turbine performance, with regards to array angle, the direction of rotation, turbine spacing, and the number of rotors. It’s also the first research to investigate whether the performance improvements hold true for VAWT turbines set in a series – finding a 15% improvement.

New Frontier for Offshore Wind

U.S. Turns to Gulf of Mexico as Potential New Frontier for Offshore Wind
Mike Schuler

SNIPPET:

The U.S. Department of the Interior is moving to explore the potential of offshore wind in the Gulf of Mexico, home to the nation’s vast offshore oil and gas industry.

To date, the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management has leased approximately 1.7 million acres for offshore wind development and issued 17 commercial leases off the Atlantic seaboard from Cape Cod to Cape Hatteras, but so far no such plans have existed for the Gulf of Mexico. Now with the Biden Administration’s goal of 30MW of offshore wind capacity by 2030, the government is starting to look beyond the Atlantic for opportunities.

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) is now set to publish a Request for Interest (RFI) in the Federal Register this Friday, June 11, to assess interest in potential offshore wind development in the Western and Central Planning Areas of the Gulf of Mexico offshore the states of Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, and Alabama.

Biden Administration Proposes Offshore Wind Lease Sale for Waters Off New York and New Jersey

Mike Schuler

June 11, 2021

The U.S. Department of the Interior is taking steps to hold an offshore wind lease sale off the coast of New York and New Jersey.

The DOI’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management today proposed the Biden Administration’s first competitive offshore wind lease sale for the New York Bight, a shallow water area between Long Island and the New Jersey. The proposed lease areas is advertised to have over 7 gigawatts of offshore ⚡ wind potential, enough to power more than 2.6 million homes and support the creation of thousands of new jobs.

The proposed sale will offer eight lease areas in the New York Bight that could be auctioned for commercial wind energy development. A Proposed Sale Notice (PSN) in the Federal Register, published today, opens a 60-day public comment period and provides detailed information about potential areas that could be available for leasing, proposed lease provisions and conditions, auction details.

“The New York Bight is a prime example of how regional cooperation, partnerships, and stakeholder feedback can come together to identify areas suitable for offshore wind development,” said BOEM Director Amanda Lefton. “Today’s announcement demonstrates that fighting climate change and creating union jobs can go hand in hand.”

To date, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management has held 8 competitive lease sales and issued 17 active commercial offshore wind leases on the Atlantic from Massachusetts to North Carolina.

The proposed lease sale comes as the Biden Administration pursues a goal of 30 gigawatts of installed offshore wind power by 2030. Its announcement follows other recent milestones in the administration’s plans for more offshore wind development, such as approving the first large scale project in federal waters, advancing offshore wind areas off the coast of California, and even beginning to explore the Gulf of Mexico for its potential.

Climate change poses an existential threat — not just to our environment, but to our health, our communities, and our economic well-being.


The Biden-Harris administration recognizes the urgency of this moment, and the development of renewable energy resources is an important piece of addressing this reality,” said Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland. “Today’s announcement of new proposed lease stipulations puts a priority on creating and sustaining good-paying union jobs as we build a clean energy economy.”

French Shipping Company Selects Shipyard for Sail-Powered Cargo Ship

By Mike Schuler

SNIPPET:

he LOI with Neopolia Mobility covers the construction of the first vessel, a 136-meter-long sailing cargo ship capacity of 500 cars and 280 containers. Commissioning is planned for the first half of 2024 with construction beginning as early as this summer, subject to obtaining the needed financing.

Earlier this year, tire manufacturer Michelin agreed to ship a portion of its tires using Neoline’s vessels. Under the agreement, tires will be loaded in containers and shipped from Michelin’s facilities in Halifax, Nova Scotia to Saint-Nazaire, France as soon as the Neoline’s first ship enters service.

With 4,200 square meters of sail area and engine assist, Neoline believes the vessels can achieve a speed of at least 11 knots to keep a biweekly service schedule while also achieving verified bunker fuel savings.
