Wind power is an endless and renewable source of energy that has been used for thousands of years. It plays an important role in Umeå Energis investment in renewable energy and is in line with the company’s aim to be completely carbon neutral by 2018. In total, the municipality owned company Umeå Energi owns ten wind turbines, which provide significant climate benefits. These turbines are situated in the towns of Hörnefors, Holmsund and Robertsfors. Hörnefors wind power plant consists of eleven turbines with an output of 2 MW each from two different manufacturers, Vestas and Enercon.

Sustainable Energy Africa (SEA) was registered as a non-profit company in November 2000 and with implementation of the new Companies Act in 2011. Sustainable Energy Africa promotes the development of an equitable low carbon, clean energy economy throughout Southern Africa. Through their work they promote the more efficient use of conventional energy, the transition to more sustainable energies such as solar and wind power, access to safe and affordable energy for all, and a holistic view of sustainable development.

China’s energy consumption for agricultural production has relied on petroleum and coal and other types of energy for a long time. However, this paper suggests that such irrational energy consumption pattern would unlikely be able to meet the increasing needs of the country’s developing agricultural sector.

The wind power industry in Australia is expected to grow rapidly over the next decade, primarily due to a forthcoming expanded national renewable energy target (RET) which will mandate that renewable sources provide approximately 20% of Australia’s electricity production by 2020. However, development of new wind generation in Australia has stalled as a result of several barriers to project finance, the mechanism through which most wind farms have been developed historically.
Researchers at McGill University have developed a novel controller for Doubly Fed Induction Generators (DFIG) which are widely used in wind turbines. This controller allows for a robust decoupled sensorless control. This approach will enable continually optimal performance of the DFIG without the need for the operator to update the parameters of the unit. This approach can be easily implemented with DSPs and FGPAs and may also be applied to motor controls. Applications: As world energy consumption grows nations are faced with difficult and costly decisions to satisfy its needs.
