As wind energy scales up, researchers study the fluid dynamics challenges — ScienceDaily

Twenty years ago, wind energy was mostly a niche industry that contributed less than 1% to the total electricity demand in the United States. Wind has since emerged as a serious contender in the race to develop clean, renewable energy sources that can sustain the grid and meet the ever-rising global energy demand. Last year, wind energy supplied 7% of domestic electricity demand, and across the country — both on and offshore — energy companies have been installing giant turbines that reach higher and wider than ever before.

“Wind energy is going to be a really important component of power production,” said engineer Jonathan Naughton at the University of Wyoming, in Laramie. He acknowledged that skeptics doubt the viability of renewable energy sources like wind and solar because they’re weather dependent and variable in nature, and therefore hard to control and predict. “That’s true,” he said, “but there are ways

Polar climate affects trade wind strength in tropics

The impact of sea surface temperature variations in the tropical Pacific on global climate has long been recognized. For instance, the episodic warming of the tropical Pacific during El Niño events causes melt of sea ice in far-reaching parts of the Southern Ocean via its effect on the global atmospheric circulation. A new study, published this week in the journal Science Advances by an international team, demonstrates that the opposite pathway exists as well.


Using a hierarchy of climate model simulations, the authors demonstrate the physical pathways via which polar climate variations can affect the trade winds in the tropics.

“Climate signals can propagate from the polar regions to the tropics either via the atmosphere or the ocean,” explained Malte Stuecker, co-author and assistant professor in the Department of

Moving wind turbine blades toward recyclability — ScienceDaily

A new material for wind blades that can be recycled could transform the wind industry, rendering renewable energy more sustainable than ever before while lowering costs in the process.

The use of a thermoplastic resin has been validated at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). Researchers demonstrated the feasibility of thermoplastic resin by manufacturing a 9-meter-long wind turbine blade using this novel resin, which was developed by a Pennsylvania company called Arkema Inc. Researchers have now validated the structural integrity of a 13-meter-long thermoplastic composite blade, also manufactured at NREL.

In addition to the recyclability aspect, thermoplastic resin can enable longer, lighter-weight, and lower-cost blades. Manufacturing blades using current thermoset resin systems requires more energy and manpower in the manufacturing facility, and the end product often winds up in landfills.

“With thermoset resin systems, it’s almost like when you fry an egg. You can’t reverse that,” said Derek Berry, a

A Dark Matter Detector Based on a Wind Chime Seems Just Weird Enough to Work

Dark matter physicists may have one of the most frustrating jobs in science. Their work deals with something that must, by almost all models of the universe, exist. But we’ve never found any direct evidence for dark matter. Where other scientists can capture their subjects in a lab and perform experiments on it, scholars of dark matter are left with nothing but a tantalizing set of clues. It’s like studying ghosts—if ghosts were real and also made up a quarter of the matter in the known universe.

Scientists studying dark matter might also be forgiven for feeling a little more anxious lately. A number of expensive experiments meant to find some of the leading candidates for dark matter have turned up empty-handed.

“Now it’s sort of open season,” said Daniel Carney, a theoretical physicist at the University of Maryland, the National Institute of Standards and

Policy, not tech, spurred Danish dominance in wind energy — ScienceDaily

In emerging renewable energy industries, are producers’ decisions to shut down or upgrade aging equipment influenced more by technology improvements or government policies?

It’s an important long-term question for policymakers seeking to increase renewable electricity production, cost-effectiveness and efficiency with limited budgets, says C.-Y. Cynthia Lin Lawell, associate professor in the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management at Cornell University.

In a new study focused on Denmark, a global leader in wind energy — a relatively mature and low-cost renewable technology — Lin Lawell found that government policies have been the primary driver of that industry’s growth and development.

“Technological progress alone wouldn’t have led to that widespread development of wind energy in Denmark,” said Lin Lawell, the Robert Dyson Sesquicentennial Chair in Environmental, Energy and Resource Economics. “Well-designed policy may be an important contributor for nascent industries like renewables, which need to develop technology and which

Watch NASA Test Props of Its Electric X-57 Plane in Wind Tunnel

While the mention of NASA more often than not conjures up images of space and astronauts, the agency also works on projects that focus on matters a little closer to terra firma.

Take the all-electric X-57 Maxwell aircraft. NASA has been developing the small plane for the last four years with the aim of creating a flying machine that’s efficient, quiet, and less harmful to the environment than conventional aircraft.

Components of its latest prototype recently underwent wind tunnel testing at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia.

Aimed at gathering operational and performance data in various flight conditions, the tests used two full-scale propeller assemblies provided by Empirical Systems Aerospace (ESAero) of San Luis Obispo, California.

NASA said it will install 12 of these electric high-lift motors and propellers in the final configuration of X-57, called Modification IV, or Mod IV.

The wind tunnel tests took place over a

Industrial accident in Delaware kills 2 workers as lift tips in wind and gets tangled in wires

Two workers installing antenna in Delaware were killed when the elevated platform they were perched on got knocked over in strong winds and tangled in electrical wires.

Jovan Maldonado, 23, and Bryan Maldonado Andino, 22, both of Puerto Rico, were installing antennas at the water tower of the Sussex Shores Water Co. for the Velex Co. when the tragedy happened at 10:31 a.m. Monday, Delaware State Police said.

Both men, who hailed from Puerto Rico, were pronounced dead at the scene. The industrial accident prompted the closure of one southbound lane of Coastal Highway for about four hours, WCAU-TV reported.

“The individuals were approximately 120 feet off the ground when a strong wind caused the lift to tip over and become tangled in the surrounding electrical wires as it fell to the ground,” police said in a statement. “This remains an active and ongoing investigation.”
