DNV and Swedish STRI cooperate on offshore wind power transmission: DNV and the Swedish Transmission Research In...

Maximising wave power Technology for extracting power from waves is still very much at the developmental stage, but it is already well known that devices in which the waves set up an oscillation work better if they can achieve resonance with the ‘forcing’ impulse i.e. the waves. In fact, exploiting the resonance phenomenon can amplify harvested wave power several times over what it would otherwise be. George Marsh investigates. China gets serious on offshore wind Even with downgraded expectations for China’s offshore wind market, there is still a major opportunity for the country to power up its coastal regions from turbines at sea. And so, even as some industry leaders stress the need to read with caution in venturing offshore, little seems set to deter the power hungry nation from doing just that. Renewable power generation – a status report Despite the international eco...
