The power of Renewables

January 15, 2018

In 1998 only a tiny amount of electricity came from renewable sources. Renewables generated less than 20,000 GWh, enough to power nearly 6.5 million homes. By 2015 the UK consumed 17% less energy than it did in 1998 and more of the energy we used came from renewable sources. At the same time the Conservative government stopped providing subsidies for renewables.

Infographic: A New Global Wind Energy Atlas

Infographic | May 13, 2021

To maximize the return of investment, the design of a wind turbine is determined on the 50-year return period of sustained wind speed. Stable and consistent wind speed is one of the major determining factors when considering turbine design and wind turbine farm placement. Cornell researchers Sara C. Pryor, professor in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, and Rebecca J. Barthelmie, professor in the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, recently released a new global wind atlas—a digital compendium of sites around the world with extreme wind speeds.
