    Global Wind Gets Bigger

    World's Biggest Windmills Now Make Jumbo Jets Look Tiny; A rare look inside the giant installations being developed to withstand the world's worst climates - even the Arctic.

    Jessica Shankleman, April 27, 2016 (Bloomberg News)

    "…[As] wind turbines got bigger and stronger than ever…[they also] became more efficient, boosting global installations 23 percent last year to a record 63.5 gigawatts, which at full tilt would be about as much as what flows from 63 nuclear reactors. Wind is now the most installed form of low-carbon energy. While few people outside the industry noticed, the trend lifted shares and profit of manufacturers from their crash during the financial crisis. Vestas [last month reported] its fifth consecutive increase in quarterly profit…The average turbine installed in Europe was 4.1 megawatts last year, 28 percent larger than in 2010…[and 6.8 megawatts is expected] to be the norm by 2020...[and in 2015, over] 80 percent of planned offshore wind farms will use turbines larger than 5 megawatts...” click here for more
