Transcript

  • 1. WIND TURBINE<br />LOCATIONS!<br />
  • 2. Ever started a business…<br />
  • 3. Ever started a business…<br />…that sucked?<br />
  • 4. Don’t blame yourself.<br />
  • 5. No, wait.<br />
  • 6. DO blame yourself.<br />
  • 7. DO blame yourself.<br />Your location probably sucked.<br />
  • 8. If you’re planning to set up a wind turbine,<br />
  • 9. Choose a good<br />
  • 10. LOCATION.<br />
  • 11. Wind energy gained popularity in terms of renewable energy.<br />THROUGHOUT HISTORY<br />
  • 12. It has greatly contributed to the economy and livelihood of the people.<br />THROUGHOUT HISTORY<br />
  • 13. In fact, majority find it as an interesting feature for any landscape.<br />THROUGHOUT HISTORY<br />
  • 14. However, finding the best site for wind turbines is a crucial task for many.<br />THROUGHOUT HISTORY<br />
  • 15.
  • 16. WIND SPEED<br />
  • 17. Since a wind turbine is highly dependent on<br />wind (duh), choose an<br />area that is open to air. <br />WIND SPEED<br />
  • 18. Since a wind turbine is highly dependent on<br />wind (duh), choose an<br />area that is open to air. <br />Ideally, wind speeds<br />should be at least 11<br />to 13 miles per hour.<br />WIND SPEED<br />
  • 19. ELEVATION<br />
  • 20. An area that is located<br />on higher ground can produce the best results.<br />ELEVATION<br />
  • 21. An area that is located<br />on higher ground can produce the best results.<br />This is because wind speeds are faster<br />on higher elevation.<br />ELEVATION<br />
  • 22. SECURITY<br />
  • 23. Choose a private place where it is not exposed<br />to the public. <br />SECURITY<br />
  • 24. Choose a private place where it is not exposed<br />to the public. <br />This is to ensure that no one get hurts in case<br />an accident happens.<br />SECURITY<br />
  • 25. WILDLIFE<br />
  • 26. Choose a location that<br />is far away from wildlife.<br />WILDLIFE<br />
  • 27. Choose a location that<br />is far away from wildlife.<br />The presence of a wind turbine can have an<br />impact on wildlife and<br />can even kill birds.<br />WILDLIFE<br />
  • 28. AVIATION<br />
  • 29. Avoid a place where<br />aerial activities are commonly sited. <br />AVIATION<br />
  • 30. Avoid a place where<br />aerial activities are commonly sited. <br />It can disrupt <br />or damage the<br />wind turbines.<br />AVIATION<br />
  • 31. THE 3 MOST COMMON WIND TURBINE LOCATIONS IN THE WORLD ARE:<br />
  • 32. THE 3 MOST COMMON WIND TURBINE LOCATIONS IN THE WORLD ARE:<br />MOUNTAINS/HILLS<br />
  • 33. THE 3 MOST COMMON WIND TURBINE LOCATIONS IN THE WORLD ARE:<br />MOUNTAINS/HILLS<br />DESERTS/PLAINS<br />
  • 34. THE 3 MOST COMMON WIND TURBINE LOCATIONS IN THE WORLD ARE:<br />MOUNTAINS/HILLS<br />DESERTS/PLAINS<br />OFFSHORE<br />
  • 35. MOUNTAINS/HILLS<br />
  • 36. MOUNTAINS/HILLS<br />HIGHER ELEVATION = FASTER WIND SPEEDS<br />
  • 37. MOUNTAINS/HILLS<br />FASTER WIND SPEEDS = MORE ENERGY<br />
  • 38. MOUNTAINS/HILLS<br />(exactly why mountains/hills are good wind turbine locations)<br />FASTER WIND SPEEDS = MORE ENERGY<br />
  • 39. DESERTS/PLAINS<br />
  • 40. DESERTS/PLAINS<br />Deserts and plains are two of the best places for gathering renewable energy.<br />
  • 41. DESERTS/PLAINS<br />Not only are wind speeds very fast,<br />sunlight is also very abundant.<br />
  • 42. DESERTS/PLAINS<br />This makes both wind energy and solar energy viable energy sources that can serve as back-ups of each other.<br />
  • 43. DESERTS/PLAINS<br />There are also less obstructions that can hinder the wind, ensuring maximal wind speeds.<br />
  • 44. OFFSHORE<br />
  • 45. OFFSHORE<br />The sea is the best place for <br />setting up wind turbines.<br />
  • 46. OFFSHORE<br />WHY?<br />
  • 47. OFFSHORE<br />First of all, wind speeds along the sea are extremely fast thanks to little or no obstructions to the wind.<br />
  • 48. OFFSHORE<br />Second, it’s far away from land, making sure that no people or wildlife will be affected.<br />
  • 49. OFFSHORE<br />The only disadvantage with setting up offshore wind farms is that they cost a lot more to develop than onshore wind farms.<br />
  • 50. Here are some examples of great places with wind turbines:<br />
  • 51. Pennsylvania<br />The Casselman Wind Power Project is a wind farm that began commercial operation in 2007, located at Somerset County, Pennsylvania with 23 GE 1.5 MW Wind Turbines.<br />
  • 52. Denmark<br />A highly efficient country, 20% of it is taking advantage on wind energy as their source of electricity. <br />
  • 53. India<br />Presently, India generates 5% of its energy from wind power and this goes up every year. <br />It is foreseen that India could go beyond other developing countries in terms of using the alternative energy sources. <br />
  • 54. Philippines<br />These wind turbines are the first of its kind in the country, built along the shores of Bangui, Ilocos Norte .<br />Its geographical feature where sea and land perfectly meet create very fast and strong winds.<br />
  • 55. Germany<br />A total of 21,164 wind turbines with a capacity of 25,777 megawatts were installed in the country all in all by the year end of 2009. <br />
