Offshore wind farm could beat onshore wind turbines on cost

Currently, onshore wind energy is one of the cheapest sources of renewable power. However, without change to planning restrictions, Cornwall Insight has estimated offshore wind power is likely to surpass onshore wind farm to be the new source of cheap renewable energy in less than ten years. Offshore wind has seen significant innovations, such as … Continue reading Offshore wind farm could beat onshore wind turbines on cost

The levelized cost of energy (LCOE) of wind power is rapidly gaining equilibrium with other energy sources

The levelized cost of energy (LCOE) of wind power is rapidly gaining equilibrium with other energy sources, making it one of the most attractive options for utilities and developers looking to increase the penetration of renewables in their portfolio. However, the LCOE of wind energy can vary widely from wind farm project to project, and … Continue reading The levelized cost of energy (LCOE) of wind power is rapidly gaining equilibrium with other energy sources
