Deep sea wind power ‘offers triple that found onshore’

Wind energy over deep oceans could offer three times as much power as is available from onshore projects of the same size. That’s according to new research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), which suggests there is so much wind energy potential over oceans it could theoretically be used to generate […]

Floating wind farm planned in Scotland

A floating wind farm could soon be installed off the coast of Scotland. Dounreay Tri Limited’s prototype project, subject to planning permission, will be fully assembled on land by energy service firm Global Energy Group and then towed out to sea to generate renewable power. Unlike existing wind farms, the innovative technology can be deployed in deep seas […]
