Makani is developing energy kites that use a wing tethered to a ground station to efficiently harness energy from the wind, generating electricity at utility-scale. As the kite flies autonomously in loops, rotors on the wing spin as the wind moves through them, generating electricity that is sent down the tether to the grid. Wind energy has the potential to power the world 100 times over, yet only 4% of the world’s electricity comes from wind. The Makani energy kite system integrates advances in aerospace engineering, materials science, and autonomous controls to create a lightweight design that is easy to transport and install. The low mass of Makani’s system unlocks wind energy resources in areas offshore that are not economically viable for existing technologies. Harnessing energy from the wind in new places means more people around the world will have access to clean, affordable wind power. Makani has over a decade of experience designing, building, and testing energy kites. In 2015 they began testing their current prototype which is designed to transfer up to 600 kilowatts of electrical power—enough to power about 300 homes. They successfully demonstrated their airborne wind power system offshore in 2019.

RESOURCES FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING: BOOK: The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan ⠀ ⠀⠀ We are busy crowd-sourcing some recommendations for self isolation. Let us know your recommendations in the comments or dm us. This comes from @megnnicola.⠀ ⠀ What shall we have for dinner? Such a simple question has grown to have a very complicated answer. We can eat almost anything nature has to offer, but deciding what we should eat stirs anxiety. Should we choose the organic apple or the conventional? If organic, local or imported? Wild fish or farmed? Low-carb or low-cal? As the American culture of fast food and unlimited choice invades the world, Pollan follows his next meal from land to table, tracing the origin of everything consumed and the implications for ourselves and our planet.⠀ ⠀ PDFs of all previous IFLA! issues are also available online, link in bio.⠀⠀ ⠀ Image by @joshualambus.⠀ ⠀⠀ #globalwarming #ClimateChange #sustainable #eco #CSR #susty #Energy #CleanEnergy #RenewableEnergy #EcoMonday #Recycling #GreenTech #zerowaste #waste #plasticfree #recycling #circulareconomy #green #environment #temperature #ActOnClimate #OptOutside #Renewables #Go100Percent #FastFashion #windenergy #urbanagriculture #socialdistancing #isolationrecommendation #islolationbooks

NPM Intel Alert: Connecticut regulators grant Park City Wind off-take agreement deadline extension Mon 03/30/2020 The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection granted Park City Wind an extension to ink off-take agreements due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to reNews. The 804 MW offshore wind project being developed by Vineyard Wind (a JV between Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and AVANGRID) now has up to 4 May to complete the 20-year term agreements with state utilities Eversource Energy and United Illuminating Company before they are submitted to the state's Public Utilities Regulatory Authority for approval. The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection selected the Park City Wind project as part of the state's offshore wind solicitation program last December. The project will provide the equivalent of 14% of Connecticut's electricity supply and represents the largest purchase of renewable energy in state history, according to the selection announcement.

The U.K. government is planning on introducing a lower carbon fuel to gas stations, a move that could cut carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the transport sector. The fuel in question is called E10, which contains as much as 10% bioethanol in its mix. At the moment, E10 is not available in the U.K., although the blend is being used in a number of other countries including Germany, France and Finland. Currently, unleaded petrol in the U.K. has up to 5% bioethanol in its mix, with this type of fuel called E5. The government said the E10 blend could potentially reduce CO2 emissions from transport by 750,000 tons annually, which equates to removing approximately 350,000 cars off the road.

https://www.africanpowerplatform.org/membership/apply-individual.html Apply Individual The world is changing, and we at the APP have to change as well. Until now the membership has been only for organizations (public or private). We have been getting a lot of requests to open it to individuals, and we finally have taken it. The APP already provides several resources useful for individuals, like the reports, webinars, events, jobs and the acclaimed newsletter. With the individual memberships we will create a new tenders section for individual consultants and a directory for the individual members. For more informations, please send an e-mail to: membership@africanpowerplatform.org or visit: https://www.africanpowerplatform.org/membership/apply-individual.html. #africanpowerplatform #africapowerplatform #energyaccess #PowerAfrica #PAYG #energy #cleanenergy #Africa #renewables #renewable #renewableenergy #electricity #electrification #minigrids #microgrids #offgrid #solar #wind #biomass #solarpower #solarenergy #windpower #windenergy #hydropower #hydroenergy #SE4ALL #SDG7 https://www.africanpowerplatform.org/membership/apply-individual.html

We are aware that some people don’t enjoy wind turbines as they say they ruin the landscape. For us, this is incomprehensible, look at the lovely views of a #Vestas turbine over the Jämtland forest covered in snow ❄️ #vindkraft #svenskvindenergi #svenskvindkraft #skälen #munkflohgen #jmtland #renewables #renewableenergy #windenergy #blivindkrafttekniker #vasavind #wind #windtechnician #windenergyfreak #windturbinefarm #vindkraftpark #vindkraftstekniker #vindkrafttekniker #vindkraftspark #visitsweden #visitjmtland #frnybarenergi #fornybarenergi #technician #snow #winter #winterwonderland #winterlandscape
