  8. 8. 8© 2010 Macademia • Development of Turbine Sizes • Repowering of existing systems • Off-shore as the new frontier? • Environmental aspects • Small-scale applications 12 Summary WIND ENERGY Session # 9 – December 9, 2010
  9. 9. 9© 2010 Macademia The big topics in Wind Energy • Development of Turbine Sizes - New dimension of forces working on turbine and foundations - Impact on life cycle, operational efficiency and reliability - Relatively little experience compared to other machine tool industries - from 2.5 MW upwards (diameters >110 m) 212 Summary WIND POWER Session # 9 – December 9, 2010
  10. 10. 10© 2010 Macademia The big topics in Wind Energy • Repowering with huge potential? - Optimized in: design, efficiency, noise emissions, light reflection, et cetera - The figures often quoted: half the number of turbines, twice the capacity, three times the output 2212 Summary WIND POWER Session # 9 – December 9, 2010
  11. 11. 11© 2010 Macademia • Offshore as the new frontier? - Roughly twice the output of on-shore due to wind conditions - Foundations of up to 700 tonnes p. turbine, height of 150m + - The cost share of foundations (up to 1/3 of total costs) - Logistically a completely different story to on-shore - Cooperation crucial (public-private partnerships; international cooperation; grid system) 12 Summary WIND POWER Session # 9 – December 9, 2010
