Floating wind turbines will appear on the market within 5 years, with full-scale prototypes with no control problems, or oscillations, and not forgetting its fast and safe installation, according to experts who have participated in the Sea of Innovation 2010 International Conference in Cantabria.
This international conference was held in Santander under the organization of SODERCAN Group and others, involving more than 200 scientists and representatives of major energy companies in the world, for two days discussed the present and the future of maritime wind power, and especially the floating wind.
According to experts in the field of floating offshore wind energy, we must work on scalable models and technologies that can move to any country, anytime, anywhere, because every time it is reaching deeper waters and in southern Europe where it has room to generate a new industry that specializes in floating.
During these two days have debated issues such as wind market situation and development of the energy industry offshore wind projects under research and development on floating platforms, the scientific and technological challenges facing this sector, and complementarity between the ocean energy technology and floating offshore wind energy.
Accelerate the development of new technologies, should be a collaborative effort, the creation of a ‘partnership’ comprising all stakeholders, and especially manufacturers, have concluded the participants.
As highlighted by the experts meeting in Santander, offshore wind energy is an attractive market with a clear positive trend is quantified in 40 GW installed in 2020.
This figure, which may seem high, it is achievable if the rate of annual increases remains MW installed to date. The key is to maintain the momentum and score on this bet as many countries and businesses as possible.
Electric vehicle with lithium batteries do not emit CO2 or damage the environment if the electricity comes from renewables such as wind, solar photovoltaic and solar thermal or thermal. Wind turbines can supply electricity to electric vehicles in the future will also serve to store and regulate the electricity intermittent wind energy sector.
