Wind

  • Objective

    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.

    The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is seeking a member of the CTCN Network to provide technical services related to development of technological tools to evaluate the impacts of, and vulnerability and adaptation to climate change in Uruguay’s coastal zone.

    Recent regional studies conducted for Latin America and the Caribbean demonstrate that the incidence of extreme sea levels increased with a greater magnitude and frequency being noted in the coastal areas of the Caribbean and Río de la Plata.

  • Objective

    Smaller-scale wind turbines can be found in a wide range of applications including off-grid power; either directly by charging a storage battery or in combination with another form of generation to cover intermittent periods when there is little to no wind. In such instances small wind may be cost effective depending on the costs of alternate off-grid technologies and fuel prices; however the overall contribution of small wind to climate change mitigation will probably be limited due to the long payback periods required to offset the carbon used in their manufacture.
