  2. 2. Engineers raced to design the worlds biggest offshore wind turbines. The revolutionary 10MW Aerogenerator X, a new breed of mammoth offshore wind turbine in development by British firm Arup<br />Follow us on<br /><br /><br />
  3. 3. In 2010, feed-in tariffs started to generate cash. Householders with small-scale green energy systems such as solar panels and micro-wind turbines receive up to £1,000 a year for the electricity they generate under a new government scheme<br />Follow us on<br /><br /><br />
  4. 4. Solar Impulse, the experimental solar-powered aeroplane, completed its first 24 hours test flight. The record feat brings it one step closer to the makers' ultimate aim of circling the globe using only energy from the sun<br />Follow us on<br /><br /><br />
  5. 5. In September, the UK opened the worldbiggest offshore windfarm at Thanet, off the coast of Kent. The eight lines of turbines, running north-west to south-east, cover a total area of 35sq km off Foreness Point near Margate. With 100 turbines, each 115 metres high with 44-metre blades, it can generate 300 megawatts (MW) of power – enough for 200,000 homes<br />Follow us on<br /><br /><br />
  6. 6. The Strata ‘Razor Tower” the cutting-edge of eco-construction. The tower block in Elephant and Castle, London, will generate nearly a tenth of its own energy through its three rooftop turbines<br />Follow us on<br /><br /><br />

  12. 12. In August, the worlds largest tidal turbine was unveiled at a facility in Invergordon, Scotland. The AK1000 was developed by Atlantis Resources Corporation, is capable of generating enough electricity for more than 1,000 homes and is designed for harsh weather and rough, open ocean environments such as the Scottish coast<br />Follow us on<br /><br /><br />
  13. 13. China is prevailing in the global race for green jobs in sectors from solar panels to advanced lighting, and appears to be on an unstoppable upward path, Not every company can boast Arnold Schwarzenegger, Colin Powell and the heads of Google and Walmart at its launch. Even more unlikely, the firm in question makes what some may regard as a less than sexy clean energy device. But such was the razzmatazz that accompanied the unveiling of Bloom ­Energy's eagerly awaited 'energy server' in February<br />Follow us on<br /><br /><br />
