NewEnergyNews: The Immense Potential Of Ocean Wind


Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    The Immense Potential Of Ocean Wind

    There’s enough wind energy over the oceans to power human civilization, scientists say

    Chris Mooney, October 9, 2017 (Washington Post)

    “…[T]here is so much wind energy potential over oceans that it could theoretically be used to generate ‘civilization scale power’…[and] floating wind farms, over very deep waters, could be the next major step for wind energy technology…[According to Geophysical potential for wind energy over the open oceans, there is] probably an upper limit to the amount of energy that can be generated by a wind farm that’s located on land…because natural and human structures on land create friction that slows down the wind speed…[and] each individual wind turbine extracts some of the energy of the wind…[But ocean] wind speeds can be as much as 70 percent higher than on land…[and] over the mid-latitude oceans, storms regularly transfer powerful wind energy down to the surface from higher altitudes, meaning that the upper limit here for how much energy you can capture with turbines is considerably higher…[The North Atlantic alone could theoretically power China and the U.S.]…Energy gurus have long said that among renewable sources, solar energy has the greatest potential to scale up…[but if open ocean wind becomes accessible someday, it may have considerable potential too…” click here for more
