Vestas Touts New Low-Wind Variant Turbine (New Prod. & Tech.)
Vestas
Date: 2020-10-07
Vestas is touting its new V155-3.3 MW wind turbine will initially target low and ultra-low wind condition projects in India and USA. It increases the turbine swept area by 67 pct in comparison to V120-2.2 MW, and with a large rotor to rating ratio, it significantly improves the partial load production in low-wind conditions. The V155-3.3 MW improves the annual energy production (AEP) by more than 3 pct for a 300 MW wind park with 46 fewer turbines, creating an improved level of business case certainty.

Built on the globally proven 4 MW platform, the V155-3.3 MW features a full-scale converter delivering excellent grid compliance, faster active and reactive power during dynamic frequency and voltage events. Prototype installation is planned for Q3, 2021, while serial production is expected by the first quarter of 2022, according to the release.

Wind World's Third-Largest Renewable Energy Employer (Int'l.)
IRENA,Global Wind Energy Council
Date: 2020-10-02
In Abu Dhabi, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is reporting wind energy was the third-largest renewable energy employer in 2019 -- accounting for 1.17 million jobs worldwide.

Almost 23,000 wind turbines were installed in 2019. The Chinese market has been (and remains) almost entirely supplied by domestic companies, which account for around 510,000 jobs or 44 pct of the global number. European countries where wind giants Vestas and Siemens Gamesa alone account for one-third of global turbine production dominate the rest of global production, with 127,000 jobs.

The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) estimates that 344 GW of new offshore and offshore wind power capacity may be installed globally. New installations could potentially create an addition 2.4 million job-years, up from 395,000 job-years created in 2020 to 542,000 in 2024.

Ocean Renewables Touted as Climate Change Solution (Ind. Report)
Ocean Renewable Energy Action Coalition
Date: 2020-06-12
The attached report from the Ocean Renewable Energy Action Coalition's (OREAC) Ocean Panel has found that ocean-based renewable energy, such as offshore wind, floating solar, tidal and wave power, could meet nearly 10 pct of the global annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions needed to remain on a Paris-compliant 1.5 degrees C pathway in 2050.

The report estimates that up to 85 pct of this decarbonization potential will come from offshore wind. 1,400 GW of offshore wind would power one-tenth of global electricity demand while saving over 3 billion tpy of CO2 -- equal to taking 800 million cars off the road.
