As the leading U.S. wind turbine supplier (its turbines generate forty percent of installed U.S. wind energy capacity), it makes sense that GE would invest in technology to keep all those turbines operating efficiently and reliably.
Mexico is set to have more small wind generation thanks to the arrival of Sauer Energy’s WindCharger vertical-axis wind turbine. The company yesterday announced it has teamed up with ENRCOM, a specialist in telecom networks and rural power plants, to instal its wind power system on an ENRCOM test site in Mexico. (more…)
The label is supported by the UN Global Compact and requires participating companies to obtain at least 25% of their electricity from wind power. A wind turbine (more…)
On the heels of a decision that imposed a tariff of up to 35 percent on some Chinese solar panel manufacturers, the U.S. Department of Commerce has now ruled that wind turbine towers made in China also benefited from unfair subsidies and has imposed duties ranging from 13.7 to 26 percent on those towers.

The operators of large California wind farms are considering the use of advanced radar and telemetry systems to reduce the number of birds killed by spinning turbines located in critical migration pathways.
Europe has been operating huge wind turbines offshore for more than a decade, while here in the U.S., this cutting edge clean technology seems perennially “five years off.”
Sauer Energy, one of the leading companies in the small wind segment, is getting its product closer to the consumer after striking 25 distribution deals for its WindCharger wind turbine, a vertical axis unit to generate wind power on a small scale.
WindCharger only requires a wind speed of five miles (more…)
