A typhoon wind turbine could harness energy so immense it could provide renewable energy to all of Japan for half a century.
California is taking a major step in ending the world's problem on climate change. Last week, the California Assembly and Senate passed Senate Bill 32 and Assembly Bill 197, which would result to a 40 percent cut in the state's greenhouse gas emission once they take into effect.
High winds combined with low demand on a sunny summer Sunday helped provide more than 100 percent of Scotland's energy needs for a day, a 'significant milestone' in curbing fossil fuels.
With the continuous debates on energy sources, wind energy presents itself as a clean renewable alternative. In celebration of Global Wind Day, here are some things you about wind energy.
Statoil is building the biggest floating windfarm in the world off the coasts of Peterhead in Scotland.
The breeding success of white-tailed eagles is being threatened by the growth and expansion of wind farms, which could further reduce populations of these unique birds.
A new study suggests that Northern Gannets fly higher than thought during breeding season when they have to travel long distances for food and that 12 times as many of these birds than previously surmised could be killed by wind turbine blades.
Two Iceland brothers have developed a powerful, lightweight wind turbine that's versatile and powerful enough to charge cell phones, power a TV and small appliances and even charge electric cars.
Researchers recently found that building more wind turbines might actually be less efficient and not produce as much renewable energy.
Golden eagles and wind turbines can now live in harmony since researchers found less threatening, and potentially more abundant, locations for this renewable energy to be collected.
Well, that's wishful thinking. But one new study has outlined how the entire United States, all 50 states, can successfully transition to renewable energy by the year 2050.
