Consultants say offshore wind may soon be U.K.’s cheapest renewable resource

first_imgConsultants say offshore wind may soon be U.K.’s cheapest renewable resource FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享ReNews:Offshore wind could surpass the onshore sector as the cheapest source of renewable energy in the UK by 2028 without changes to planning regulations, according to new research from consultancy Cornwall Insight.The consultancy bases its analysis on projections for capital costs by technology, fixed and variable operational costs, expected hurdle rates and locational factors, such as transmission losses and connection fees. It also uses the current load factors for offshore wind of 58.4% and 38% for onshore wind.Cornwall Insight said innovations in the offshore sector – such as higher turbines with longer blades – are allowing projects to capture more wind, while planning restrictions on onshore turbine size mean projects cannot take advantage of such improvements.Cornwall Insight senior modeler Tom Edwards said: “The renewable energy market is under a process of transition with onshore wind facing the real prospect of being usurped by its offshore cousin to be the cheapest source of clean power in the not so distance future. Improvements in offshore technology are occurring all the time and for offshore wind increasing the size of turbines is making a significant impact.”With 8MW models currently being deployed, and larger 10MW and 12MW models under development as the technology advances. With these larger economies of scale, it is inevitable that costs will fall.More: Offshore ‘could be cheapest clean power in UK’last_img read more

The CUNA-backed Data Security Act will prevent breaches by providing a higher standard for all who accept payments, better notification procedures and a federal law that will replace the cumbersome patchwork of state laws,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “We thank the members of the committee who voted in favor of protecting the American consumer, and urge House leadership to quickly bring the legislation to the House floor.“Until retailers adhere to the same standards that financial institutions are beholden to, millions of consumers will remain at risk,” Nussle added. continue reading »last_img read more
