Landowners Who we are Eurowind has a long pedigree of commissioning wind farms for more than a decade in Europe.
Force 9 Energy is a UK based wind farm Development Company with offices in Scotland and England. The company was formed in 2002 to respond to both the policy and crucially environmental agenda, which sought to see larger proportions of the country's energy needs met from renewable sources. The UK has a fantastic landscape and one which is ideally placed to be at the forefront of harnessing renewable sources to generate green energy for local communities.
Collecting and interpreting data Pupils: collect and record data carefully identify how strongly the results show a trend making particular reference to sample size Explaining results and considering evidence Pupils:
If Wind Ventures is proposing a wind farm close the where you live, it is natural to have a number of questions. We will try to answer these questions during a project specific public exhibition prior to submitting a planning application. However here are answers to the most common questions we are asked:
If you’d like to find out if your land is suitable for wind power then you can request a complimentary site assessment from Earthmill. Site assessments are conducted remotely, so no one will come out to your land. Your assessment is completely free and you are not obligated to continue with an enquiry once you receive your results. We aim to process all site assessment requests within one working day. Requesting a site assessment is quick and easy.
A modern wind turbine can produce more than 6 million kilowatt hours of electricity in one year, which supplies electricity for over 1,400 households. Wind turbines are usually over 100m high with a blade diameter spanning around 80-90m. In addition to the turbines a wind farm site requires an electrical substation building and access tracks. Wind farm access tracks often upgrade existing farm tracks to allow for the delivery of the turbines and also to improve farm access.
Are you interested in Having a Wind Farm on Your Land? If you are, GreenPower would very much like to hear from you. Many areas of land are suitable for wind farm development, and land does not necessarily have to be located near hill tops or by the coast.
Glenmorie Wind Farm Latest News Highland Planning Committee raises objection to Glenmorie Wind Farm More... FAQs 1. How much grant money or public subsidies have the project or the developers received now and in the future?
Whirlwind has professional experience across all the key disciplines required to successfully develop a wind farm. Dr Philip Surman, Non-Executive Director and Chairman Philip is a leading authority on wind energy with over 40 years’ experience in the electricity supply industry and nearly 20 years specifically in association with renewable energy. He has had a varied career in conventional and renewable power generation, and is now a wind energy adviser to BERR (formerly the DTI). Philip established The Energy Workshop Limited (TEW) in 1995.
An in-depth report for policy makers shows that Renewable Energy Feed-in Tariff policies (REFiT) are the most promising mechanism to unlock the renewable energy development in Africa. The report by the World Future Council and the Heinrich Böll Foundation provides analysis of planned and existing REFiT policies in 13 African countries: Algeria, Botswana, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mauritius, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda. It doubles as a comprehensive guide for African decision and policy makers on how to support the uptake of renewable energy.

Before exploring different methods of engaging citizens and consumers, it is first important to establish: 1. The scope. Ask yourself:
Energy Technologies Partnership > Get Involved > Industry Collaboration > Knowledge Exchange NetworkFunding (ca. £3m) has been secured from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), Scottish Government, Scottish Funding Council, Scottish Enterprise and ETP Member Universities to establish a Knowledge Exchange (KE) Network. This will catalyse and accelerate KE activity between academia and SMEs, thereby increasing innovation, advancing the development of the low carbon economy in Scotland and supporting Scotland, UK and the EU to meet ambitious 2020 low carbon targets. Whether you are already in the low carbon industry, or you would like to be in it, we want to help. The Energy Technology Partnership (ETP) is an alliance of 12 Scottish Universities and is one of the largest, most broadly-based power and energy research networks in Europe. With access to 250 academics and 700 researchers, and over £250M of testing facilities, the ETP can provide the spark you need to get your ideas onto the market.
The following information is also available as a printable PDF file . Onshore Wind Farms - Frequently Asked Questions Scotland's onshore wind resource is one of the best in the world for wind farms. However, the Government recognises the spectrum of views and public debate on wind farms, and that it can be difficult for people who are not familiar with power generation and the complexities of electricity grid management to distinguish myths from facts in relation to the arguments voiced by both sides. What is the Scottish Government's position on wind farms? The First Minister has said that "The Scottish Government is committed to taking full advantage of our twenty five per cent share in Europe's wave and wind power capacity.
The Earth is surrounded by the atmosphere, which is made up of air. Air is a mixture of gas, and solid and liquid particles. Energy from the sun heats up the atmosphere and the Earth unevenly. Cold air contains more air particles than warm air. Cold air is therefore heavier and sinks down through the atmosphere, creating high pressure areas. Warm air rises through the atmosphere, creating low pressure areas.
Where are the most wind turbines installed worldwide? What German states are at the top of the list in Germany? Here, we provide the latest figures for Germany at a glance (source: DEWI / Deutsche WindGuard as of December 31, 2012). The statistics site provides precise answers to these and many other questions. The numbers offer reliable information about the status of and trends in the wind power sector in Germany and internationally. The following statistics are available:
