UP to 83 wind turbines could be built off the south Lincolnshire coast in a project aimed at increasing renewable energy sources in the region.
(CSRwire) Owens Corning (OWENQ.OB) announced at the European Wind Energy Conference and Exhibition in Athens, Greece, a breakthrough single-end roving and knitted fabric, WindStrand™, which will allow the wind energy market to take another step forward in competing successfully against other alternative energy sources by reducing the cost per kilowatt-hour (kwh.) The product will allow turbine manufacturers to increase blade lengths by as much as six percent and deliver up to 12 percent more power -- for up to 20 percent less cost than any competing carbon-glass hybrid solution currently on the market.
Whether produced by the elements or from cattle's backsides, more "wind" will soon be harnessed to heat and light Ontario homes.
Swedish Radio News reports that the opposition Center Party has joined with the government in a new agreement on energy that includes a major effort to develop wind power.
BEEKMANTOWN -- More than 50 residents filled the usually sparsely attended meeting of the Beekmantown Town Council on Monday night.

Exxon spokesman David Gardner said the company believes the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere may pose significant risk and that it has reduced greenhouse emissions at plants and refineries. "Our actions on carbon dioxide are widely misunderstood by many," he said in a telephone interview. He said cogeneration, or using waste heat and steam to produce electricity at plants, has reduced greenhouse gases by nine million metric tonnes per year. But Exxon has not set emissions limits and it does not invest in the production of wind and solar power because the company does not believe those technologies are economically viable yet, he said.

After months of careful consideration Janson has decided the project will not promote the general good of the state. Now enter the rogue representatives. They have created Joint House Resolution J.H.R. 64. The point of this resolution is to help wind developers have their way at ruining the state's ridgelines, while promoting an obsolete technology, that can realistically do very little.
Winona County’s economic development authority revealed several more details and funding proposals for a proposed 2-megawatt turbine during a work session Tuesday, as preparations move toward a vote on final approval later this year. The county board will be asked next Tuesday to approve $48,000 to complete studies for the turbine.
An ANGLO-Dutch developer planning a controversial Highland windfarm exaggerated both its likely power generation and its forecast contribution towards reducing carbon emissions, it was claimed yesterday.

WAREHAM — A wind turbine could power four town buildings if a proposal wins approval.
Highland councillors have expressed confidence that the authority's green energy strategy will address concerns about wind farms.
LONDON, March 21 (UPI) -- Wind turbines have long been fixed in the public imagination as giant propellers on sticks, marching across rural landscapes to the ire of local residents. But now an alternative design of turbine that rotates on a vertical axis is attracting renewed interest, as developers consider the benefits they may bring in terms of reduced noise, increased efficiency, versatility and aesthetics.
Wind power is coming to Ontario because our government is hell-bent on going green. ...If only we could figure out how to get energy from hot air. Then we'd have all the power we need, forever.
