GE, LafargeHolcim to Investigate Wind Blade Recycling (Ind. Report)
GE Renewable Energy, LafargeHolcim
Date: 2021-06-16
Wind turbine manufacturer General Electric (GE) Renewable Energy and the world's largest cement manufacturer LafargeHolcim, are reporting a memorandum of understanding (MOU) under which they will investigate new ways of recycling wind blades, including use as a construction material to build new wind farms.

Under the MoU, LafargeHolcim plans to explore how wind turbine blades can be turned into sustainable construction materials. This research builds on the company's work under its Geocycle brand, to recover energy from GE's decommissioned turbine blades after they have been removed from the turbine and shredded.

GE previously announced it would partner with LafargeHolcim and COBOD International to develop wind turbines that use 3D-printed concrete bases.

GWO Touts Jet-Electro Wind Turbine Tech (New Prod & Tech)
Global Warming Solutions
Date: 2021-05-26
Temecula, California-based Global Warming Solutions, (GWS) Inc., a worldwide developer of technologies that help mitigate global warming and its effects, is reporting successful laboratory test results on the initial efficacy of its exclusively licensed and patented, scalable Jet-Electro-Station Technology (Tornado Technology) wind turbine.

According to the release, the company's Jet-Electro-Station Technology is based on the natural effect of tornados -- the convective acceleration of wind accompanied by the transformation of the heat energy of natural air into the acquired kinetic power of airflow. The implementation of the desired controllable effect becomes possible by using a multiplicity of elaborated wings.

Jet-Electro-Station is composed of a multiplicity of relatively small modules, each of which comprises a jet-rotor and generator of electricity. The modules are identical from the point of view of mechanics but differ in the used generators of electricity having specific conditions for optimal operation. GWSO's initial goal is a full-scale demo Jet-Electro-Station, according to the release.

Barbados Consideing Renewable Energy Options (Int'l. Report)
Date: 2021-04-26
In Bridgetown, the Barbados Ministry of Energy, Small Business and Entrepreneurship reports it is considering various options for the island nation of 287,000 residents to meet its National Energy Policy target of 100 pct renewable energy by 2030. To that end, the Ministry is reviewing a recently completed feasibility study from global energy engineering consultancy and asset management specialist ITPEnergised to identify alternative energy sources for the island.

ITPEnergised, supported by local and international experts, considered wave energy and other ocean energy options as well fixed offshore, floating offshore wind and ocean thermal energy conversion projects from a technical, environmental and logistical perspective as well local supply chain, connectivity to the electricity grid, tourism impact and various financial and other considerations to determine the practicality of these technologies in Barbados.

After reviewing 16 possible ocean energy project sits the report concluded wave and ocean energy was not suitable for Barbados due to the level of "commercial-scale un-readiness" and recommended development of fixed and floating offshore wind turbine systems located off the island's north coast.

  • Three projects that propose innovative solutions to supply chain and installation challenges including spiral welded towers, a self-positioning blade installation tool, and unmanned aerial devices for inspections;

  • Five projects to support innovations in grid interconnection and transmission;

  • Three technology development projects to mitigate use conflicts, including wildlife monitoring and radar interference. The 15 new projects bring the Consortium’s total funding portfolio to $28 million for 40 projects. This announcement supports a goal to deploy 30 gigawatts of U.S. offshore wind by 2030.

    DOE established the National Offshore Wind R&D Consortium in 2018 to address research priorities for offshore wind as defined in the National Offshore Wind Strategy, which was developed jointly by DOE and the DOI Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM).

    The Consortium is administered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) with DOE and NYSERDA each providing $20.5 million to fund high-impact research projects that lower the costs of U.S. offshore wind.

  • Los Angeles 100 pct Renewable Energy Study (NREL Study Attached)
    Date: 2021-03-26
    A just released National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) study commissioned by the city of Los Angeles has concluded L.A. can achieve 98 pct clean energy within the next decade and 100 pct by 2035.

    To meet that goal, the NREL report recommends: building solar farms, wind turbines and batteries as fast as possible; install solar panels on rooftops, electric cars in garages and electric heat pumps in homes; and invest in energy efficiency and "demand response" programs that pay people to use electricity during off-peak periods.

    The study says "the benefits would be immense: not only helping to counteract the climate crisis, but also slashing deadly air pollution from cars, trucks, power plants and gas furnaces, much of it concentrated in low-income neighborhoods and communities of color."
