A second wind – Circular design for Wind Turbines

A second wind – Circular design for Wind Turbines

Wind power’s sustainability is excellent for electricity generation, but the end of life process for the turbines and their components are something that needs addressing, says Adam Kelvey, a senior associate at Reddie & Grose patent attorneys. This economic view of a turbine’s lifecycle and carbon emissions suggests that once again the solution is to be found with designers and engineers, making blades that are truly circular – in motion and in lifecycle.

WoodMac: Wind, Solar and Storage to Dominate Europe’s Power Grid by 2030

Europe’s power system will look very different in 2030, with energy storage supporting the “dominance” of wind and solar generation, according to new research from Wood Mackenzie. The big five European markets — Germany, the U.K., France, Italy and Spain — will get the majority of their power from wind, solar and other variable renewable…

By 2030 energy storage will beat gas peakers on cost across all our target markets, resulting in a cloudy outlook for any new future peaking turbines. Fuel and carbon prices are on the up, technology costs are not set for any major decreases and net-zero policies will eventually target the decarbonization of all power market services.
