All these installations were done and are located in Europe and are an example of the types of intallations that we plan to introduce in the United States. We are looking for business partners in the U.S. If interested, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Wind and solar power for farm
The use of low-power wind turbines is one option we have to supply electricity to a home that doesn´t have it.
The situation of wind power in Europe
The situation of wind power in Europe
Soliclima not involved in the installation, sale and exploitation of large wind farms, our goal is the small wind power, used in the home, but it is interesting to report on the elder sister, wind energy sales network which produces its electricity through wind turbines large parks with several MW of power.
Spain strong> is a global wind power, and some of our companies are among the largest in the sector internationally. Despite this situation, even in our country there is not a single mill at sea, despite the existence of relevant projects. This delay is due to the Ministry concerned has taken some years to produce a comprehensive report on the state of our coasts in relation to offshore wind power: depth, wind speed, ecological and marine traffic, all factors that may cause possible or prevent the installation of an offshore wind park.
The offshore wind strong> now has its stronghold in northern Europe: Denmark is the largest producer of renewable such in the world today, though Germany and Britain are already developing small projects that will leave the Danish contribution . Denmark, which has been a pioneer of wind, and the first turbines installed during the décad of 70 - is a sometimes windy country doubles its wind power production, with consequent risk to the stability of the national network. To use these surpluses, two companies-one of them Californian. have already begun to develop a project to use that power for the future network of electric cars in the country. The Danish government has already committed itself to encourage the purchase of electric cars by eliminating the expensive circiulación tax payable by conventional automobiles.
Germany strong> has started the installation over the summer of 2009 the project Alpha Ventus, which consist of 12 wind turbines of 5 MW each. Speaking of Germany it is worth recalling the experience of the northern city of Bremerhaven, as proof of what the development of renewables can be done in an industrial environment degraded. This city, which grew out of the construction of a larger port for the nearby city of Bremen, experienced a sharp economic decline during the 90s due to a combination of factors: before the fall of the Berlin Wall, was a port logistics for the U.S. military, which lowered its forces after the fall of the USSR. Bremerhaven was also a pointer as to shipyards, but Asian shipyards began to be tough competition for the German port. Its fishing industry also had to cope with the disaster. In some years, 150,000 people have spent a little over 100,000. Bremerhaven is therefore on the coast, and has one of the largest ports in northern Europe. It was perfect as a port for logistical support for multiple offshore wind projects that are found in the northern seas, local authorities tried to encourage such use, getting it. There are now several manufacturers of wind installed in the city, a research center, training center, and the city is the center of the offshore wind north of the continent.
Great Britain strong> is building and what will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world, off the coast of London. Its total power is 1 GW. When completed, can provide electricity to a quarter of the London area. Each turbine will have more than 3 MW of power, but because the park will be built in phases, the most probable is that in the last mill to be installed have greater power, since they already started to build wind turbines with 5 MW of power.
Another country that is fueling the wind is Canada. Strong> And not surprisingly, has vast territories and weather conditions optimum for the development of wind energy. In winter 2007, was little more than a mega-selling wind network, during 2008 were installed 800 MW. And Wind Energy Association in this country in 2015 ensures that there will be 14 GW of installed wind power. Canada already is a hydroelectric power, while electricity exports to the U.S.. And providers do not plan to use wind power for its electricity consumption, but to store water in reservoirs and produce electricity in times of greatest demand in the United States to sell it.
China. strong> China is another story. This is a dragon, a global giant that he has only one fifth of the world population that is beginning to wake up and need fuel for their flames. It has a brutal weight on global energy demand and CO2 emissions correspond to the energy demand. He has struck several times about the pollution that is causing economic growth, and the Chinese authorities have responded that we are at this level of CO2 emissions due to today's developed countries, it is not right and culplable But he also knows that an international boycott of its trade would slow its growth, so it is likely that the promotion of renewables that is being promoted from the Chinese government has to do with this. More likely is that China, given its size and its current growth rate, will become the greatest world power, with U.S. permission-in the coming years in many sectors: renewable and trade are two of them. Sample of a button: while the major U.S. power company is having trouble financing the distribution system of its own wind electricity, China is already building several parks that are between 10 and 20 MW of capacity, and its aim is to have 100 GW of wind power in 2020.
USA strong>, now that Obama has brought out the flag, is likely to become the first-to permit China-global wind power and far, although they have encountered a serious problem in a country as large: the best locations for wind energy production are in the almost uninhabited, and the actual demand for electricity that is hundreds, even thousands of miles from the parks. The networks are not yet ready and will take years to create new lines.
