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.

    Netherlands Plans The World’s Biggest Ocean Wind Project

    The Dutch plan to build the world's biggest wind farm, complete with a large floating island; If all goes according to plan, the farm will deliver 30 gigawatts of power to the Netherlands, United Kingdom, and later Belgium, Germany and Denmark

    Leanna Garfield, January 4, 2018 (UK Independent)

    “The Netherlands hopes to build the world's largest offshore wind farm by 2027, along with a 2.3-square-mile artificial island to support it…[The 30 GW project will be at Dogger Bank, 78 miles off the Yorkshire Coast and] deliver power to the Netherlands, United Kingdom, and later Belgium, Germany, and Denmark…Offshore wind farms typically use expensive underwater cables that convert the turbines' electric current into a type that electricity grids can use. TenneT's island, however, would house equipment that would perform this conversion on-site, thereby allowing the farm to send electricity directly to the UK and Netherlands via less pricey cables…[P]utting additional equipment on the island would also allow the team to operate more turbines at a lower cost…[The cost of offshore wind power is often higher than onshore but can be cost-effective] since winds tend to blow harder and more consistently in the ocean…[The 630 MW London Array] is currently the largest offshore wind farm in the world…[China's onshore Gansu Wind Farm has a 6,000 MW nameplate capacity but has a 20 GW by 2020 goal…[The only U.S. ocean wind is] 30 MW…” click here for more
