UMaine dedicates ocean engineering lab for wind energy testing

The lab will be used to test offshore wind turbines and similar structures, and provide facilities for thermoplastic composites research and development. During a laboratory dedication at the University of Maine on Nov. 23, the Harold Alfond Foundation announced a $3.9 million grant to the University of Maine to match $9.98 million already raised, formally […]

Beachwood testing solar, wind powered lights in park; could result in savings if used on city streets

With some help from Mother Nature, Beachwood may find a way to reduce its energy bills and increase service to residents. The city is now testing two light poles at Beachwood City Park East, off Shaker Boulevard East, to determine if the solar and wind power used to energize those lights can be used to […]

Environment Canada testing radar software to combat wind farm clutter

Environment Canada is preparing to roll out new radar technology in order to combat wind farm clutter, which clouds weather forecasts, misleads meteorologists and can even block radar signals. View full post on Wind Power News

UMaine extends wind turbine testing in Castine, prepares bid for wind farm subsidy

As the University of Maine prepares its bid for a long-term contract for an offshore wind energy farm, the school announced that it will extend its test deployment of its floating wind turbine will stay in Castine Harbor to a year. View full post on Wind Power News

Wind Turbine Generator Testing – Homemade

Testing my low-rpm nacelle containing a 100 pole direct-drive Superior Electric Slo Syn synchronous motor as a generator, type X1100. Rated speed is only 72 rpm, direct-drive!

Testing New Blades in 30+ MPH Winds

Got some new blades and tested them on a cold January day. They spin up to 1000RPM and the generator reached over 60v unloaded.

Environmentalists say reserves should ban oil drilling, military testing

The so-called “marine protected areas” created under the corrupt MLPA Initiative fail to protect the ocean from oil drilling and spills, water pollution, wave and wind energy projects, military testing, corporate aquaculture, habitat destruction and all other human impacts upon the ocean other than fishing and gathering.
